This striking Chawan is decorated in a style called Aochibu. This style was developed in the Taisho era(1912-1926). Small dots in blue or white are applied to the coloured background to create a special texture.
A great deal of skill is required to make the dots the same size, evenly spaced, and the same colour.
Dimensions: Width 11cm x Height 8cm
