Description
This chaire is fashioned in the popular high-shouldered (katatsuki) form with glaze work typical of the Zeze kilns. The shifuku (cover) that accompanies it is fashioned from a satin (donsu) fabric known as Fujitane (a family name), which bears a plum flower motif over a ground called hishi manji. Zeze is known as one of seven kilns favored by tea master Kobori Enshu (1579-1647), who developed an elegant, refined style of tea. The piece is housed in a paulownia box bearing calligraphy that describes its provenance.
