This elegant natsume (tea container) was made by an artist named Hamataka Etsuro. Natsume are usually made to preserve thin tea (whereas chaire are used for thick tea). They are traditionally made of lacquered wood.
This natsume is made in the maki-e style, where gold has been applied to the lacquer, forming here, an elaborately made design of a sparrow. The richly sprinkled natsume give both the bird and the objet princely allures.
The natsume is in excellent condition. It will be shipped in a wooden box, signed by Hamataka Etsuro.
