The texture of this glass sake jug reflects the rugged snow-capped slopes of Japan's sacred Mount Fuji.
This little jug, or 'tokkuri', is made in a traditional shape and style for serving Japanese sake. It is made from clear glass with an irregular frosted texture to give it a natural feel.
This sake jug can be used with any traditional glasses or sake cups but matches best with the Mount Fuji sake cup. I have priced these items so that you can have a jug with two sake cups, and experience the tradition of drinking sake at home, for just under £20.
This glassware range is made by the TOYO-SASAKI Glass Company of Tokyo, Japan, whose craftsmen and designers work to keep traditional production techniques alive. They are well known in Japan and produce many exclusive items for large Japanese department stores.
The jug holds about 190ml (6.7 fl oz).
Made in Japan.
