Lacquerware that matches modern life

Feature 1 of small plate

Lacquerware that matches modern life

Small plates produced by a long-established lacquerware store founded as a lacquer merchant at the end of the Edo period. Lacquerware is rarely used in daily life due to changing lifestyles, and we want people to experience its charm naturally in their daily lives. With this in mind, we produce a variety of products.

The appeal of this collection of simple and colorful lacquerware is that it matches the lifestyle not only in Japan but also in other countries.

Lacquer small plates with a variety of patterns and colors to choose from

Feature 2 of small plate

Choice of patterns and colors! A set of 6 can also be ordered.

There are six variations of the small plates, all in different colors and with different pictures of animals on them. All of them are designed by Unsoudo, a woodblock printing company in Kyoto, and all of them have charming expressions. They are so cute that you can't help looking at them!

In addition, the color of the lacquer is very vivid. We often see red and black lacquers, but it is rare to see such a wide variety of colors. This is the skill of the lacquer experts who have been in business for nearly 200 years.

You can choose the color and pattern for each piece, or you can purchase a set of six pieces. We hope you will welcome your favorite into your home collection.

Attractive small plates with a lacquering technique that brings out the grain of the wood.

Feature 3 of small plate

Lacquering technique that brings out the grain of the wood

The small plates are finished with a lacquer coating technique called "mehajiki," which brings out the grain of the wood. This is a technique in which the wood has striations called "conduits" and is coated with raw lacquer, leaving these striations without a base coat.

Therefore, the surface of the small plate has streaks of grain unique to wood. The charming expressions of the animals, combined with the texture of the wood, will make you feel warm and fuzzy every time you pick it up.

Small plate of moderate size and lightness unique to wood

Detail of small plate1

Moderate size and lightness unique to wood

The plates are about 3.94 in. (10cm) in diameter and about 0.39 in. (1cm) high, and although they are chunky and thick, they weigh only about 0.06 lbs (25g) each, making them light and attractive in a way that only wood can be.

The size is easy to use for small purposes, such as serving a small side dish or a snack with beer or wine, not to mention as a serving dish. It is also useful as a fruit plate or children's snack plate.

If you purchase a set of six pieces, you can easily coordinate your table for entertaining guests.

Small plates that can be used as a coaster, small container, etc., depending on your ideas.

It can be used not only as tableware, but also for a variety of other purposes depending on your ideas. It can be used as a coaster under a cup of cold tea when serving it to guests, or as a place to put rings, earrings, and other accessories.

Since it is hard to break even if dropped, it is easy to place in any location, such as the entryway, living room, or on top of a cupboard. They can be stacked and stored when not in use, so they don't take up much space.
