These truly fine and traditional lacquer o-wans will make a great presentation for your excellent dish in an authentic Japanese way.
Meshi-wan (rice bowl) is used for serving rice. O-wans are used in many cases with dishes that contain any kind of soups that you are to sip those soups from the owan directly. Owan comes in various forms and sizes especially in the Kaiseki ryouri (course dinner), where many of them are used with a lid on top. The o-wan with a lid is more formal.
Wajima-nuri is widely accepted as the pinnacle of achievement in terms of lacquer art that has developed in the natural environment of Japan. The traditional heart of Japan is expressed through the tirelessly accumulated techniques of the craftsmen that produce the lacquer art. Both durable and exquisite, it has timelessly expressed the elegance of the soul of Japan. Chinkin-bori, (Japanese: “gold-inlay carving”) is a technique for decorating lacquer ware with patterns delineated by thin lines of gold inlay.
Our lacquer lidded o-wan set is decorated with chinkin-bori technique depicting crab/seafood.
Size: 6 inches diameter; 4 inches high each bowl with lid. (15 cm x 10 cm).
Condition: Excellent vintage. Minimal time patina on the chinkin decoration.
Provenance: Osaka-area, Japan.
