This is a rare sake cup with an elegant saucer. It is thought to date from the Meiji period, when Kutani was at its height in export.
Everything is finely hand-painted, and the entire piece is covered in flowers such as peonies and daffodils. The gentle hues of the flowers add an extra touch of elegance. The contrast between the blue painted outer surface and the blue pattern is also beautiful and modern, and different aspects can be enjoyed from various angles.
One can only imagine how the princesses of the era might have been gracefully slumbering while viewing cherry blossoms with this sake cup.... Why don't you think back to the elegant era while drinking sake from this sake cup?
Size: Sake cup: 5 cm (diameter) x 2.5 cm (height), Saucer: 7.5 cm (diameter) x 1.5 cm (height)
