- Pattern: Japanese Symbols / Circles
- Made in: Unknown origin but due to the symbols, we believe it’s Japanese
- Vintage: 1980’s (estimated)
- Details: This sake tokkuri is filled with so many symbols, we don’t know where to start! We can identify a few like: “Yukiwa”, looks like a snowflake, here depicted in a blue circle; it’s a “Good Sign” symbol, something good will happen. We also see “Hishi”, the circle with red and green diamonds; that is a symbol of Generativity (caring for the elderly and the children), and Prosperity. There are Cherry Blossoms of course, a beautiful symbol of Beginning, here depicted in the pink, red and white circle. The “Pines” (the circle with dark green looking clouds), typically seen together with Bamboo, which may be the next circle that looks like palm tree tops to us, these are symbols of auspiciousness (promising success; opportunity; favorable. prosperous). So all in all, a wonderful vessel of well wishes for the owner, makes a great gift, perhaps for someone starting out on a new journey. This looks hand painted to us, has lots of gold accents and moriage on the cherry blossoms. It is marked on the bottom with a traditional oriental red square stamp, but we’re unable to find any information regarding this stamp. Not only a great gift, but also makes a great piece of decor. If you’re looking for an accent piece for your bar or bookshelf, this is a great choice. Great oriental decor an excellent hostess gift, makes a great little vase too!
