Gingko Leaf Echizen Lacquerware Plate
This beautiful glossy plate features a shape of a gingko leave that is finished with a lacquered technique called "Tame-nuri."
Tame-nuri is a lacquering technique in which the red color can be seen through the translucent lacquer by applying a coat of translucent black lacquer on top of a middle coat of red lacquer. The calmness of Tame-nuri and the appearance of the ginkgo leaf make it a fine presence.
You can arrange a bamboo leaf on the plate and place Japanese confectionaries on it, or lay a paper mat on the plate to serve Tempura. You can also place Japanese accessaries, such as paper dolls on the plate or seasonal ornaments, and display it in your room. Smooth to the touch, the beautiful lacquer coating will brighten up your dining table.
To clean, it can be hand-washed, but please make sure to wipe it dry thoroughly.
