Urushi Lacquer Shochu Cup by Shikki Shop

By Shikki Shop 

Fukui Prefecture-based Shikki Shop specializes in all things urushi, the beautiful, incredibly durable lacquer drawn from Asian lacquer trees and used commonly in traditional Japanese handicraft. The Urushi Lacquer Shochu Cups shown here are a perfect if understated example of their work.

The shochu cups come in two styles: one with a black rim that fades to the gorgeous vermillion of raw urushi, while the other shows the opposite color sequence. Designed as vessels for Japanese shochu whisky, count on the cups to enhance the enjoyment of sake, beer and other spirits too. For wine lovers, we recommend the red and black urushi wine cups:

Color: red or black exterior
Size (φh, mm): 88 × 80
Materials: kigo wood, urushi lacquer
