This is a Momoyama era Iga bowl. The real McCoy. I have a Iga mizusashi I will post soon. Real Iga is less common than Shigaraki. I don’t really have a lot to say about it. It surprised me to find out it is so old. The condition of the glaze and surface suggested a much newer piece. It has a nice feel to the surface. If you try to make and sell something this relaxed as far as finish goes these days you would get shot down.
