These beautifully crafted Yamanaka Lacquerware children's spoons are wonderful additions to the table when enjoying a meal with children. 

These spoons come in four different designs of a bunny blowing bubbles, a friendly elephant, a smiling lion and a happy cat. Each handle also has a different small design on it.

All the drawings on the spoons are hand drawn with care, giving a simple yet warm expression to all the animal designs.

The shape of the spoon is designed to fit comfortably in small hands. Even if your child grows up, it is a good size for eating "chawanmushi" (steamed egg custard) or desserts as a small spoon.

Enjoy the high quality craftsmanship of Yamanaka Lacquerware's technique of "Suri-urushi" which enhance the beauty of the wood grains of these spoons.  "Suri-urushi" is where multiple layers of raw lacquer are rubbed into a wooden surface to create a transparent shiny coat.

Match these forks with plates, bowls and forks with the same design to make a cute tableware set for your children or as a gift set.
