While rust-brown ‘hare’s fur’ streaks are most characteristic ‘Jian’ ware tea bowls, those with silvery streaks as on the present bowl are rarer to find. With its sparkling glaze interspersed with metallic silvery to coppery steaks, the present bowl is a fine example of nogime temmoku bowls.
A wide range of different temmoku bowls is published in Tōbutsu temmoku [Import commodity ‘temmoku’], Chadō Shiryōkan, Kyoto, 1994, including some of the finest examples preserved in Japan as well as bowls excavated in Fujian province. Compare a closely related example from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, included in the exhibition Hare’s Fur, Tortoiseshell, and Partridge Feathers: Chinese Brown- and Black-Glazed Ceramics, 400-1400, Cambridge, 1995, cat. no. 83.
