Japanese lacquered bowls with lids, vintage Wajima Akebono-nuri lacquer owan, set of 10 miso soup bowls in their original Tomobako wooden box.

Elegant and vibrant pattern from one of the highest value urushi style, the Wajima Akebono-Nuri.

These lacquered bowls intended for Japanese miso soup, but can also be used to serve rice. The lid keeps the contents nice and warm.

An ideal gift for lovers of Japanese culture or gastronomy. Also an ideal way to wow your guests or for a restaurant use.

These bowls were made especially for a very famous restaurant and fishery in Tokyo, the Uotora, their logo 魚 寅 are hand painted by the lacquer craftsman in red on each bowls. Certainly not a urushi finish we could see everyday.

The bears some "zen" appeal. Each own bowls are individually hand-finished by the artist, and no two bowls will ever be exactly alike. The black is slight "showing through" the brown urushi with intentional surface "wear and tear". This look of natural wear is considered to be very refined, it hips again in Japan and is generally used in tableware in ultra chic Tokyo cafes or in ultra luxury hotels.

Carefully looked after, these pieces will provide years of enjoyment, growing in character and gaining more depth and luminosity. Each product is a one-of-a-kind item due to the intricate and time-consuming nature of the craft.

Wajima-nuri (輪島塗) is a type of Japanese lacquerware from Wajima, Ishikawa. Wajima-nuri represents a form and style of lacquerware which is distinct from other Japanese lacquerware.

The main distinguishing feature of Wajima-nuri is the durable undercoating achieved by the applying multiple layers of urushi mixed with powdered diatomaceous earth (ji-no-ko) onto delicate zelkova wooden substrates.

They are in a good condition with light marks due to their age. I highlighted the worse flaws on the last picture. Please see photos. The bowls will last longer if they are gently washed by hand.
