Satsuma faceted glass, said to be a phantom of faceted glass

Satsuma faceting was produced in the Satsuma Domain (present-day Kagoshima Prefecture) at the end of the Edo period and was called "phantom faceting" because it was produced for only about 20 years. The technique of Satsuma faceting once ceased to exist, but it was restored about 100 years later, and the technique has been handed down to the present as a traditional craft.

Satsuma faceted glassware is characterized by the combination of several patterns and gorgeous designs. Just by being there, this beautiful tableware shows its brilliance and presence.

Glass is one of the easiest items of tableware to incorporate into daily life. We recommend that you welcome a glass made by traditional handcrafts as a special tableware.

Thin, pale amber "old style".

When Satsuma faceted glass was first produced, the color of the glass was not as transparent as it is today, but was a raw color. The glass was reproduced by adding iron oxide and other ingredients to produce a thin, pale yellow color.

It has a unique atmosphere that exquisitely blends the gentle impression of the color and the brilliance created by the finely cut pieces. The beautiful amber color, which gives a feeling of elegant calmness, like an antique, will bring you a rich moment in your daily life.

Lace-like transparency gives the table an elegant look.

Matching old style glasses with table decorations gives a much more elegant impression. The delicate cuts reflect the light and sparkle like lace, so beautiful that it is hard not to admire. While the color is not assertive, you can feel its moderate presence. The gentle appearance makes it suitable for women to use.

You will want to use them during evening drinks when you want to take your time and enjoy your drinks, or during precious moments spent with your loved ones. Since faceted glasses are full of a sense of luxury, they are also good to use when entertaining guests.

At first glance, it may seem difficult to coordinate tables, but it is easy to match with both Japanese and Western tableware and is a powerful ally that adds a touch of glamour to any occasion.

Old glass to enjoy on the rocks

Old glass is officially called old fashioned glass. It is characterized by its wide mouth and low profile, and is used for drinking whiskey or other beverages on the rocks with large ice cubes.

The size of this glass is approximately 7.5 cm in diameter and 8.8 cm in height, and the glass itself is thick, another characteristic of Satsuma faceted glass. The bottom part is even thicker, weighing approximately 330 grams, which is a very solid weight that gives it a high sense of stability. The back of the glass is also cut, giving it a beautiful shine from any angle.

At 280 ml, it has a generous capacity among old glasses. In addition to whiskey, you can also enjoy your favorite drinks such as shochu and plum wine at your leisure.
