A perfectly paired set of tea cups that serves up both whimsy and style.

Items Included
- 2 Porcelain Tea Cups with Lids
- 1 Wooden Storage Box


This pair of Arita-style porcelain is a wonderful his-and-her addition for any couple who enjoys savoring a relaxing sip of premium Japanese tea. Whimsical design elements of stylized Japanese karako dolls accent each teacup in a way that reflects on the traditional Japanese character known as Ikkanjin—one who spends time peering deep into the well.

Due to the size of the teacups, with the larger being 180cc and the smaller being 160cc, this set is ideal for enjoying hojicha, kyobancha, or yanagicha.

The long history of porcelains over 4th centuries
The technique lasting from generation to generation by dexterous potters

Yi Sam-pyeong, who was one of the Korean potters, settled in Kita-Kyushu (northern Kyushu) and discovered the clay fit for porcelain in Arita-Izumiyama in Saga Prefecture. Presumably in 1616, he succeeded in baking the clay of porcelain in a kiln in Kamishirakawa-Tengudani, Saga Prefecture. This is the origin of porcelain in Japan. Afterward, a lot of kilns were built around Hizen area, and Arita has developed as a center of the porcelain industry since then instead of Karatsu. Karatsu was a former center of that. In the beginning of 17th century, Sakaida Kakiemon in Arita learned the technique of Gosai. Gosai is the way of overglazing using five colors. After learning the way of Gosai, he created Akae or a porcelain conspicuously painted red. A large number or Akae porcelains were soon purchased by the Dutch East India Company and exported to Europe. After that, Akae porcelains in Arita were actively exported to other countries. Also, porcelains made in Arita were shipped to all over Japan from the port in Imari, Saga Prefecture, so they are called Imari-yaki, also Arita-yaki. Nabeshima-han (clan) in Saga Prefecture built special kilns in their territory and made highly skilled potters produce Nabeshima-yaki at the kilns.
Kakiemon, Imari-yaki, and Nabeshima-yaki are most famous types of porcelains in Japan.
The way of manufacturing porcelains in Arita gradually spread across other regions in Japan.
