Found a grail, need funds for grail! Also, my tea display overfloweth. I will not allow myself to expand my storage. So some of my lesser used pieces need a new home. Nothing wrong with any of them, I just haven’t connected with them.

All prices are shipped in the US. I will ship internationally, but the buyer pays. The more you buy the more you save!

1.Haruyama Sasaoka (going with Google Translate here, in Kanji 笹岡春山) - 105ml $215
Carved Banko kyusu, I believe the carving depicts the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove. It’s hard to photograph the carving.

2.Mizuno Hiroshi Mogake Kyusu - 175ml $150
Very precise, very light weight and thin walled. Tomobako is missing the cord.

3.Tortoise Hohin with coaster - 155ml $200
I can’t read Japanese, so I can’t tell what the name is on the Tomobako and the name on the auction listing doesn’t match the artists profile in the box. To my eye, the signature on the tomobako matches the hohin. Regardless, its a beautiful hohin, makes tea wonderfully!

4.Bizen Hohin - 190ml $100 SOLD
Unknown Maker Unused by me. Small crack on the knob, seems to be from firing, still solid.

5.Kuwayama Keiyo Shudei Kyusu - 150ml $120 SOLD
Capacity is not to the top, the deep lid displaces some water

6.Kuwayama Keiyo Shudei Kyusu - 120ml $120

7.Hokujo Woodfired Kyusu - 270ml $425
One of these days I will find a Hokujo piece I really click with, unfortunately this isn’t it. It’s everything you know his pieces to be. Light weight, beautifully made, precise.

8.Yoshiki - 250ml $150
His famous yohen style, no hammered effect. No tomobako.

9.Antique Bizen Houhin - 190ml $160
No Tomobako or signature. A lovely piece that was used extensively before I got it. Didn’t realize that, was disappointed by how slow it poured, but the tea tasted so deep and rich! Then I shined a light in it and the filter lit up like a green stained glass window. After the nausea passed, I boiled it a few times and cleaned the filter with my Waterpik. Small chip on the edge.

10.Bizen Hohin - 195ml $50
Unknown maker. Unused by me. Lid has a small chip on the bottom. It also just rests on the opening, it doesn’t have a lips for it to rest in.

11.Big honkin’ Bizen Dobin - 675ml $75 SOLD
Unknown maker.

Thank you! I seem to cycle through the same few pieces of tea ware, so these need a new home.
