This is a sophisticated tumbler glass with Japanese traditional painting by a Kyo Yaki artisan. This can be used for serving a wide variety of food and drink from Japanese tea or sake to ice cream and parfait and is perfect for everyday use or special occasion. It will expand in application depending on your idea. Of course, it can be used not only in the summer season but throughout the year.

This drawing pattern is designed in the motif of a traditional drawing pattern called KAKUZU, which was originally drawn by Hohitsu Sakai (1761 - 11829). Hohitsu Sakai established a basis for one of the most famous traditional painting schools, the RIN school, along with Kohrin Ogata. SAN of this name means three, and KAKUZU means drawing pattern of cranes, which is auspicious. It is said that KAKUZU is one of the masterpieces of Hohitsu Sakai.
Because the legs of the cranes are drawn on the bottom of the glass, it looks like the cranes are standing in the water (bottom of glass); a beautiful effect. It looks unique and elegant. Gold color pigment modestly and courtly adorns and adds an extra touch of class.

Patterns are drawn on the outside surface of the glass. The impression of viewing from the inside is interestingly different because these patterns are viewed through the glass.

This sophisticated tumbler glass will certainly add unique atmosphere to a table, and make any moment special.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
