Suishobori seigaiha lidded yunomi tea cup

A very unique cup from Hasami, Nagasaki prefecture. The small holes around the sides are individually punched out by hand to create a lacy pattern and then filled in with "secret crystal", a material whose exact properties are known only to the craftsmen of the kiln! When held up to the light, the holes sparkle, adding a lovely translucent quality to the white porcelain which is further offset by bands of sometsuke wave patterns. Exquisite craftsmanship!A great way to enjoy the visual effect of the green tea in the cup as well as savoring the taste!
Comes in a paper gift box.
