曜変天目茶碗四点目・Yo’uhen Tenmoku No. 4 

Leave a comment

This blog has written about “yo’uhen tenmoku” bowls in the past.

以前こちらで曜変天目茶碗について触れたことがあります。

There is a Japanese TV program “Nandemo Kante’idan” – similar to our “Antiques Roadshow” where viewers can bring their item to have it evaluated by professionals.

日本のテレビ番組で「なんでも鑑定団」というものがあるそうです。アメリカの「アンティーク・ロードショー」に似て、視聴者が品物を持ち込みプロに鑑定してもらうのです。

According to a recent Japanese news story, a new “yo’uhen tenmoku” bowl was discovered and was valued at 25,000,000 Yen (approx. $213,000).  Until then, there were only three bowls known to exist – and they are all designated as Japanese national treasures.  Some appear to think the valuation was too low.

最近の日本のニュースによれば、曜変天目茶碗が新たに発見され、2500万円という鑑定が出たそうです。それまでは3つしかその存在が知られておらず、全てが国宝に指定されています。鑑定額が低いと感じた人もいるようです。

The bowl was part of the lot purchased by the owner’s great grandfather during the Meiji period from a well-known samurai family as part of the compensation for the family residence’s construction work he was performing for the family.

この茶碗は所有者の曾祖父が明治時代に、著名な武家家族からその屋敷の工事を請け負った際その報酬の一部として買い取った数々の品の一部だったそうです。
