Categorized into either sake flask from Ryukyu Islands (Okinawa) or Yaeyama Islands (in the southwest of Okinawa Prefecture), also a scarce type before the Meiji period considering of the aftermath of World War II. Very popular shape and size for the actual use of Japanese-style evening drink, arranged with refined 'kintsugi' gold restoration (with scenic exposure of red lacquer base coating) by the former owner, which tells how much it was loved with tender care. Usable for simple flower arrangement as a vase besides a flask. Enjoy the essence of "unintentional beauty", with or without sake or flowers.

Size: approx. Height 15cm (5.90in), Diameter 9cm (3.54in)

Primary material: Ceramic
