Suishobori seigaiha guinomi sake 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!
Comes in a paper gift box.
