A coffee cup and saucer adorned with a traditional Nabeshima peach pattern, meticulously handcrafted by a skilled artisan.
The term "Mokko" refers to a modified cloud-like shape, believed to be inspired by the cloud-like form of the petals and calyx of plum blossom sweet tea, also known as Mokko, which is a member of the hydrangea family.
It boasts a dignified finish that prioritizes overall thinness and lightness, ensuring comfortable use, especially with its delicately thin edges.
This traditional Edo-period artistry features a composition of one color (blue) and three accent hues (red, yellow, green), prominently highlighting red. The meticulously drawn lines and layered, subtle gradations evoke a dignified charm. This tribute-inspired design encapsulates ancient Japanese elegance with a touch of grandeur.
