Tea Cup Shin Ume

This distinctive tea cup is handmade in Japan using traditional techniques. The cup has been thrown and then gently indented with two hollows, places for the index finger and thumb to rest. 

Completing the piece is the use of a pretty crackle glaze and a delicate natural tone colour that encircles the rim and base. Bought in a pair these are a very special gift for tea lovers and those that dedicate time and effort to the ceremony of tea & coffee. 

It measures 7.2cm in diameter and 9cm high.
