Japanese Teacups - Pair of Brown Turquoise Drip-Glazed Agano-yaki Yunomi - 100ml
This pair of Agano-yaki yunomi (teacups) feature a stunning brown and green turquoise drip-glaze.
Agano-yaki (上野焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Fukuchi in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. Praised for its elegance and light weight, Agano ware began being produced in the 17th century.
Agano ware is famous for its use of enamels over the glaze. The most well-known of these enamels produces a vibrant blue-green/turquoise dripping effect caused by copper oxide in the enamel.
Please note: glaze patterns will have natural variations and may not be exactly as pictured.
