紹鷗茄子・Jo’u’o’u Nasu

Leave a comment

「紹鷗茄子」と呼ばれる茶入が2つあると知って驚きました。どちらも唐物大名物で、両方とも武野紹鷗所有であったためその名がついたとのことです。こちらは1587年豊臣秀吉主催の北野大茶湯に出されたもので、現在はサンリツ服部美術館蔵となっています。

I was surprised to learn that there are two cha’ire named “Jo’u’o’u Nasu“.  They are both Chinese made, considered as o’ome’ibutsu.  They were both named after their owner J’o’u’o’u Takeno.  This one was used at Kitano Great Tea Event, hosted by Hideyoshi Toyotomi in 1587, and is now held by Sanritsu Hattori Museum of Arts.

所有者の名を銘にする場合、はじめの所有者の名を取るのが通常のようですが、後日の所有者の知名度が高い場合はそちらに譲ることもあるそうです。

When the owner’s name is adopted as the name for a tea utensil, it is customary to take the first owner’s name.  However, when a subsequent owner is more famous, that name may later be substituted.

もう一つの「紹鷗茄子」は底に紹鷗による「みをつくし」の文字と花押があるところから「みおつくし茄子」という別名があるそうです。

The other “Jo’u’o’u Nasu” has J’o’u’o’u’s writing (that reads: “miwotsukushi“) and signature at the bottom.  For that reason, it is also referred to as “Miotsukushi Nasu.”
