Red Mesh with Sakura Kutani Yunomi Japanese Teacup Pair

JPY ¥57,500

This is a pair of lidded yunomi Japanese teacups featuring a red mesh pattern adorned with cherry blossoms, known as sakura in Japanese. Each fine line is drawn individually by Kutani ware artisan Sawada Ikumi. The mesh pattern, a long-favored design in Japanese tableware, together with cherry blossoms, conveys a traditional ambiance.

These lidded teacups are ideal for entertaining guests, as the lids help to retain the tea's warmth, preventing it from cooling too quickly. For casual occasions, relish relaxed tea moments with friends and family using these cups without their lids.

These cups are versatile, suitable not only for Japanese green tea or roasted Japanese tea but also for a variety of beverages such as coffee and black tea. Beautifully encased in a paulownia wood box with the name of the item and of the artisan in Japanese calligraphy, these teacups make for a gift that will surely be treasured.

About kutani ware

Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
