JPY ¥5,500

Only 23 pieces in stock!

This is a small charming teacup decorated with four beautifully painted sakura (cherry blossom) flowers on its sides. 

The light pink sakura flowers are highlighted on a shiny surface created by a coat of a lustrous glaze. At Tasei Kiln, two skilled female artisans with over 40 years of experience paint intricate and graceful patterns, and coat each item with a luster glaze. Their special technique gives the teacup a luxurious and stylish feel. The sakura designs are masked, and then the remaining surface is given the luster glaze. The glazed surface has a distinct textured glossy glimmer and shines beautifully under light. 

Furthermore, what makes this teacup special is the appearance of a cherry blossom design when green tea is poured into the teacup. You can enjoy the delicate design of a cherry blossom on the outside and the inside of the teacup. 

To create a beautiful sakura theme setting for a tea party, match the cup with the teapot and small plate in the same sakura motif.

Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".

 Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.

You sent my items in a beautifully wrapped package. It was a joy to unwrap my new tableware. This teacup is delicate and pretty. It is still heavy enough that my tea remains warm as I drink it. My evening cup of lavender tea is even more relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful product.
