$600per set

About

We have an aesthetic sense peculiar to Japanese people. And we introduce the unique items that only we can do, the route of purchasing in Japan, the experience value so far, and the way that no one can imitate. Negoro is one of the painting methods for Japanese lacquer ware. The feature is that black lacquer is applied to the wooden base, and then red lacquer is applied. It originated from the lacquer ware used by monks at a temple called Negoroji. It was made in large quantities during the Edo period, and many temples used this Negoro lacquer ware on a daily basis. This item is believed to have been used in temples as well. Because there are three points on the back of this cup. This is a mark that indicates that it was used in a temple. And I think this is from the 1700s to the 1800s around the middle to late Edo period. One is that the lacquer is about to come off, but since the lacquer film is hard, there seems to be no risk of it coming off. Many negoro lacquer ware looks like this, although there are small chips and peelings. This is because the monks used it every day. Please use it with drinks and alcohol. As a precaution, do not add boiling water. The lacquer may discolor. Also, do not wash with detergent or a stiff brush. The lacquer may be damaged. If possible, you should wipe it off with a cloth to keep it clean. It is okay to wash it with water, but only wipe the cup where the lacquer is about to come off. It's rare! I highly recommend it. It is a set of five. size Diameter 8-8.6 cm, height 4.3 cm Checklist -The colors may look slightly different depending on the environment of your computer or camera.
