These Japanese Vintage Okinawa Tsuboya Pottery Ware or Tsuboya-yaki Pair of Sake Cups were a purchase from Japan. The seller thought this set dated to the early to mid-Showa Period of 1926- 1989. Tsuboya yaki comes from Okinawa Island which has more than more than 1500 years of history. Take a moment to see a picture, it is absolutely gorgeous. These are all handmade the natural glazed color of the pottery, then hand painted in shades of green, blue, gold and brown in a very interesting design of the artist rendition of the sun over the waves on the island of Okinawa. They are very lovely sake cups and a style that is much loved by the leaders and members of the Mingei group. They are not marked or signed. They are in very good condition with no chips or cracks. There is some surface wear of age as one might expect.

SIZE: One is just a little shorter than the other, They are both 2.87” or 7.3 cms in diameter. Height: 1.57 or 4cms, and 1.5 or 3.8 cms

Several famous potters have been makers of Tsuboya pottery, including Shoji Hamada and Kinjo Jiro who was the first Okinawan artist to be designated a Living National Treasure.
