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.

The soba inokuchi, with its reasonable size, can be used in many ways other than for eating soba noodles. We recommend that you incorporate it into your daily life as a special item that highlights the handiwork of craftsmen.

Exquisite color matching! Double-cased faceted

​​Satsuma faceted glass is made by covering the surface of transparent crystal glass with colored glass at least 1 mm thick, cutting it deeply, and polishing it. The "blurring" and delicate patterns created by this process are the most distinctive features of Satsuma faceted glass.

This soba inokuchi is usually covered with one color, but it is covered with two different colors and cut. The beautiful gradation of the two different shades of color makes this item fascinating to behold with its beautiful and lustrous shine.
