This exhibition features an extraordinary tea-leaf storage jar named Chigusa, which though made in China in the late thirteenth or fourteenth century, spent the next seven hundred years in Japan, where it acquired the multiple dimensions of its significance—its profoundly practical use as a jar for storing tea leaves, its great prestige and value as a Chinese jar, karamono chatsubo, and its individual name chosen from court poetry.
