Sakura and Autumn Leaves Kutani Ware Flower Vase with Stand
This vase features a deep green color with Sakura (cherry blossoms) and autumn leaves. Normally, Sakura and autumn leaves are representative flowers/plants of different seasons, spring and autumn, respectively, but this is a combination favored in kimono and tableware and is called a "Syunju" pattern.
This pattern depicts an "imaginary season" in which cherry blossoms and autumn leaves exist together, and since it does not apply to any of the four seasons, it can be used in any season and creates a fantastic atmosphere. This vase is perfect for displaying your favorite flowers throughout the year.
It makes a wonderful interior decoration not only for arranging flowers, but also for displaying on a shelf. When displayed with the attached stand, it becomes a more chic and dignified decoration.
Kutani Ware is recognized around the world as "Japan Kutani" and has been renowned for its quality. The charm of Kutani ware lies in its unique layered colors (red, green, yellow, purple, and navy blue), which give the porcelain a sense of dignity. The traditional craft of Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, which boasts a history and tradition of about 360 years, adds vivid color to everyday life.
