Japanese Chataku - Pair of Banko-yaki Tea Saucers
This pair of Banko-yaki chataku (tea saucers) are decorated with grain engravings.
Chataku are the perfect way to elevate your tea serving experience. Unlike western saucers which are often made of porcelain and decorated to match a tea set, Japanese tea saucers are made from wood, lacquered wood, or metal, and generally do not match any particular set.
Banko-yaki (萬古焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Yokkaichi in Mie Prefecture, Japan. Its characteristic purple hue comes from the mixture of red oxidised iron and blue high temperature-baked iron in the clay.
