A Kutani Nagomigama green ceramic on-the-rocks cup with a vivid Ginsai pattern.
In a size that is easy for women to hold too and made with fine materials and glaze. Also, these items are hand-made one-by-one on a potter's wheel to enhance the fit in the hand.
With its vivid, beautiful design, this colorful cup is a versatile item that can be used a variety of ways - as a teacup, coffee cup, sake/shochu/whiskey cup, interior decoration, etc.
The paulownia box has also the same design as the cup, drawn on-by-one by hand, making this a storage box that provides good storage and a sense of unity. Give as a gift for a special occasion to make someone happy.

Special-order 100% purity silver leaf foliated to a thinness of 2 microns (2 thousands of a millimeter) are attached one by one to each item, then it is put into a kiln and polished so that the fired silver leaf becomes smooth. On top of this, beautiful and transparent "Kutani 5 color glass glaze" is applied.
These Ginsai items require a great deal of effort and skill to make, such as putting in a kiln more than 4 times until they are complete. These are items with combined transparency and beautiful coloration that add extra quality to dishes and drinks.
The modest spatial beauty of the silver leaf thinness and cut surface are carefully created totally by the hands of craftsmen. As this is very delicate work, the thickness of each individual silver leaf varies slightly, meaning that a feature of Kutani Nagomigama's Ginsai items is that no two are ever the same.
