This hand-crafted sake cup bears the beauty of a white milk-drop glaze contrasting against the pale grey exterior of the piece. This distinctive design is a trademark of such renowned Japanese ceramic styles including the revered hagiyaki.
The light colour of the white slip glazing on the vessel imparts a sense of coolness and purity when sampling sake from it. The wide mouthed soba choko like shape is both beautiful to drink out of and to hold.
A collection of different sake cups is not only stunning when displayed but there's a charming Japanese custom of presenting a range of sake cups on a tray when serving sake - you choose whichever speaks to you.... Usually that means the largest one for us so we can fit more in! This one would be just right!
Approx. 8.0 cm in diameter across the top, 4.0 cm across bottom
