Japanese Teacups - Pair of Meoto Obori Soma-yaki Yunomi
This couples' pair of Obori Soma-yaki yunomi (teacups) feature an elegant celadon glaze decorated with hand-painted horse motifs. Called 'meoto yumomi' in Japanese, couple's pairs of teacups are traditional wedding gifts.
Obori Soma-yaki (大堀相馬焼) is a type of Japanese porcelain produced in the town of Namie in Fukushima Prefecture, and dates back to the early Edo period. The most distinctive features of Obori-soma ware are its celadon glazes which feature large crazing patterns, hand-painted horse motifs, and double-walled construction. This double-walled technique provides insulation, keeping liquids hot and your hands cool, and is unique to Obori Soma-yaki.
