Kurikyu Sake Pitcher
This sake pitcher’s design is simple and beautiful. The natural grain of its cedar wood material and the dark cherry bark used to fix the ends of the bentwood sheets to each other provide a striking contrast. Each pitcher is both elegant and fits comfortably in the hand for pouring. The signature smell of this cedar wood will complement any sake and add another layer of enjoyment to your drinking experience. Received the "Good Design Award".
There may be variation in the grain of the wood. The cup you receive may not be the exact cup displayed here.
