The Collection: Tableware, Bowl & Plate
The design references ancient Chinese lidded containers; we offer three sizes - large, medium and small.
Chrysanthemum were introduced to Japan from China. Because of its generous and radiant bloom, they quickly became a symbol of auspiciousness. Originally cultivated for medicinal purposes, they are believed to enhance longevity and ward off illness; chrysanthemum wine is said to stop the aging process. In the past, people from the Ryukyu Islands would use the chrysanthemum motif on vessels, porcelain and clothing made from Okinawan bingata fabric. They also made vessels and other objects in the shape of chrysanthemum.
The stacked container is ergonomically designed and easier to handle than our first generation Bliss of moon and chrysanthemum(菊月合喜) containers. The domed lid makes extra room for your treasures and is visually appealing with floral motifs in relief.
The pattern features clusters of flowers in layers, large and small, blooming in profusion. No matter the passage of time, the love symbolized by the treasures in this container will never falter.
在日本，据说菊花传自中国。因花型呈放射状展开且外观美丽，被认为是吉祥的象征。菊曾被作为长寿药 (汉方药) 使用，能带来长生不老、无病消灾，据说喝下杯中漂浮着菊花的菊酒，能够长命百岁。在过去的琉球，会将菊花纹样用于漆器、陶器及红型衣裳上。此外，也有仿造菊花形状所制作而成的漆器等作品。
