|Meiji Imari design coffee cup and saucer by Kisen - Shunjumon
Coffee cup and saucer with a wonderfully nostalgic feel from the Kisen kiln in Arita. The cup is decorated with patterns originally created for Imari porcelain exports in the Meiji period (the late 19th century). A wonderful way to bring a little taste of history into your everyday life.
Shunjumon - A sumptuous design of cherry blossom and maple leaves, representing the seasons of Spring and Fall that encapsulates the true "spirit" of Arita yaki. Unusual in that it combines two trees that would normally never be seen together in nature, this pattern has long been popular for it's fine use of color and detailed brushwork.

Made in Arita, Japan
