Zuiho Kiln Chrysanthemum Tsukidashi Small Plate
This is a small chrysanthemum-shaped small plate by Zuiho Kiln of Arita porcelain. The metallic-colored rim enhances the texture of the simple white porcelain, giving it a more sophisticated look.
Chrysanthemum is a shape often used in Japanese tableware. Chrysanthemums have meanings such as "love" and "true strength" and are known as an auspicious motif.
This small plate comes in two colors, gold and silver. The gold has a warmer feel and the silver a cooler impression. This plate is suitable for everyday use as well as for festive table settings.
The small, slightly deep design is designed to suit a dish called "Tsukidashi" as served in Japanese restaurants. Tsukidashi is a small dish that is served first as a snack with sake.
You can put them on a large plate or inside the Jubako Bento Box for a more gorgeous presentation. It can be used not only for cooking, but also for sauces and condiments.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".
Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
