Yoshita Kasho Koi Fish Maki-e Glass Sake Cup
A fascinating piece of golden glass, adorned with a beautiful miniature painting of a koi fish on the golden base.
This glass sake cup is coated with transparent lacquer, and its uneven brushed layer enables a lavish and varied glare of gold, reflecting from the gold leaves at the base.
The koi fish at the bottom is hand painted, and protected by a glass layer, so you can cherish its design without worry of scratches. The heat-proof glass was made in Aomori prefecture by Tsugaru Vidro, a region with a long tradition of glassware.
The painting of the koi fish is not static, but that of a life-like image with the fine lines of the fins. The curved body of the koi fish shows the elegance of fish in Japanese garden ponds.
Accompanied by an elegant swimming koi fish. Your favorite sake drinkware makes your home bar a little more special and impress the guests and family. We truly believe good sake ware makes sake tastier.
It is perfect for a special occasion when enjoying sake alone or with guests. This exquisite sake cup also makes for an extraordinary gift for those who love sake, as it comes in a chic box with the Yoshita Kasho logo.
