Kutani Ware Japanese Pair Cup with Gold LeafRegular price $50.83
This is a sake cup made with "Kinsai," a typical Japanese Kutani ware technique.
Kinsai is a technique in which gold leaf is cut away to create a pattern in the gaps, and then fired with a highly transparent glaze.
The glaze creates a softness in the gold leaf, resulting in a bold yet delicate workmanship.
The vessel is thick, giving it a profound impression and presence.
The moderate weight makes it easy to hold and comfortable in the hand.
Although it is a vessel for sake, it can of course also be used to hold and enjoy other alcoholic beverages.
Please enjoy a delicious meal while sipping a little sake at a time.
It is especially recommended as a gift.
The gorgeous sake cup with gold leaf will please the recipient of the gift.
