Meticulously handcrafted by adept artisans, the Yoshita Kasho Maki-e glass rectangular plate is a paragon of exquisite craftsmanship, effortlessly uniting the peerless quality of glass with a pioneering technique. This involves the integration of hand-painted Maki-e, employing natural lacquer, harmoniously combined with the esteemed Kanazawa gold leaf, presenting a piece where finesse and tradition resonate in every detail.

Especially when used as a confectionery dish during tea ceremonies or formal seating, it not only enhances the appeal of the served sweets but also instills a vibrant, festive feeling in its user.

The plate's design is themed "Mubyo" or six gourds, a clever play on words as it also resonates with the term for good health, also "Mubyo."  Every plate, hand-painted and adorned, carries a distinctiveness, a testament to its handmade origin.

The belt of gold leaf beneath the glass lends it a sophisticated elegance, with an outer protective paint ensuring durability and safeguarding the intricate designs from scratches and wear. The smooth top surface retains a touch of artisanal waviness, and its grid-designed base ensures stability on tables.
