This black lacquer shin-nakatsugi (cylindrical matcha caddy) is coated with traditional urushi lacquer.

Nakatsugi (中次) are a type of usuchaki (薄茶器 - thin tea caddies) more commonly known by the moost popular style, natsume. The nakatsugi predated the natsume and is believed to have descended directly from yakki (薬器 - medicine vessel), old wooden medicine containers that may have originated in China. Today, the most popular variety of nakatsugi is the shin-nakatsugi (真中次) which is roughly the size of a chu-natsume.

Because nakatsugi, like most natsume, are not airtight, they are not suitable for long term storage and are only intended for presentation and heightening the tea making experience.

Dimensions:

6.5cm (2.6in) - width
6.7cm (2.6in) - height
90ml - capacity

Condition: Excellent

This vintage Japanese item ships from Thailand
