Alternatively, the size of this vase is suitable for arranging these beautiful blooms softly alongside grasses for a more subtle effect. Whether you opt for classic designs or something more unique, this vessel will add a touch of elegance to any space.
The vase comes with a sophisticated black box with Hataman logo that is a perfect gift for those who have a passion for interior design and floral arrangement.
Iro-Nabeshima has traditional rules, consisting of one color for Sometsuke (Gosu) and three colors for Akae (red, yellow, and green). After outlines are drawn in gosu, red, "kibi" (yellow), and "moe" (green) overglaze painting is applied to the inside. Although it appears that many colors are used, in fact only three colors are used for overglaze painting, a characteristic of Iro-Nabeshima, and its beauty is considered the pinnacle of Japanese porcelain.

The aesthetic style that Nabeshima ware has carefully maintained as a traditional rule since the Edo Period is composed of one "Sometsuke" color (blue) and three "Aka-e" colors (red, yellow, and green). Those painted in only blue color are classified as "Sometsuke" style. The extremely fine, carefully drawn lines and the light gradations that are repeatedly layered within them create a dignified appearance. The traditional patterns of Nabeshima, which were offered to the nobility, are designed in a sophisticated manner, yet with a sense of glamour.View more Nabeshima Series

Imari Nabeshima Ware
Nabeshima ware is a porcelain ware produced by the Nabeshima domain kiln, which was established in 1628 by 31 selected potters in the Arita and Imari areas (Saga Prefecture) as a project directly managed by the Saga Nabeshima domain in the early Edo period.
For about 250 years until the abolition of the domain in 1871, the Nabeshima ware, which could only be used by shoguns and feudal lords, continued to produce porcelain masterpieces such as "Iro-Nabeshima (colored Nabeshima)", "Sometsuke" and celadon porcelain, and others as masterpieces of the finest quality. Later, the kilns became private kilns, and new potters joined to create the present Imari Nabeshima ware.
