- Curator's comments
- This is an example of what is called 'Hansu', which was made outside of Busan kilns according to Japanese taste. Clay spur-marks are visible but they are too cleanly made to be functional. The footring is the common type. The spiral in the footring is anti-clockwise. Produced during the 17th and 18th centuries. The inscription on the storage box reads 'Totoya', but the box is not the original container of this teabowl.
