Product description
A set of soup bowls that you can find literally nowhere else: the artisan behind them took care of each stage of the manufacturing process, from carving to painting and lacquering, making them different from any other set that will ever be made.
Bowls and lids are painted in a rich red and feature four kanji characters that may translate to "A long, happy and honorable life", conveying good wishes. Because of this meaning, this kind of objects are often thought of as presents.
This set includes 5 fully hand-made bowls with lids.
