Maki-e Lacquer Natsume

An elegant natsume (tea container, in Japanese). Natsume are usually made to preserve thin tea (whereas chaire are used for thick tea). They are traditionally made of lacquered wood.

This particular natsume is made in the maki-e style, where gold has been applied to the lacquer to form, here, a refined design of bamboo stalks. The skillful use of rich shades of gold, which give depth to the motif, reveal a masterfully made objet.

The natsume is in excellent condition. It will be shipped in a wooden box, whose lid bears the logo of the Shirogi-ya lacquer manufacturer of Fukushima prefecture.

Please let us know if you have some questions.

Dimensions: 6.5 x 6.8 cm (2.6 x 2.72 in); 43g (1.5 oz)
