Hanazume Kutani Japanese Rice Bowl Pair
A pair of Japanese rice bowls decorated in beautiful Hanazume style, meaning filled with flowers, one of the most notable design of Kutani ware which has been handed down from the Taisho period (1912–26).
In Japan, there is a culture of giving rice bowls as a gift to married couples to celebrate their marriage. It's also perfect for use together with best friends, siblings, or parents and children.
As you can see in the picture, the two are slightly different sizes. It's a good idea to choose your favorite bowl according to the amount of rice each person eats.

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.
