Aizen Kiln Indigo Blue Rabbit Hasami Children's Large Cup
A beautifully handcrafted children's cup with an authentic Japanese feel.
The charm of this cup is in the hand-painted drawings.
Two bunnies sitting side-by-side on an Indigo blue semi-circle with an Arabesque design are hand drawn on each piece. And differing shades of Indigo blue can be enjoyed with the watercolor painting style.
The bunnies and the Arabesque patterns are outlined with a thicker paint giving the cup a slight texture under the smooth glaze. You can feel the outline of the bunnies and vines with your finger tips.
The base is a soothing beige color with the edges colored in a rustic brown. The rim of the cup is rounded and smooth, and has a comfortable touch to the mouth. Use it to serve drinks for your children at the table for a Japanese style meal at home.
The cup is fairly light in weight and easy to hold. You can pair this cup with the matching rice bowl to make a tableware set for your little ones or as a gift for a friend.
As this cup can hold about 7 ounces of liquid, it is also suitable for adults. Match it with the smaller cup with the pink rabbit design to make a set.
