Cherry Wood Tea Leaf Canister

Regular price $140 Unit price  per 

Description:
Made by Fujiki Denshiro Shoten, the gold standard of fine cherry wood craft since 1851. The longer you use a Denshiro canister, the more beautiful it becomes. Made from wild cherry tree bark that has been carefully polished by hand, you can add to its natural luster and gleam of the wood simply by using it in your daily life. Valuable cherry bark is used even for the interior of the canister and lid, making it a premium article of rare beauty.

Variation:
Due to the natural material and handmade nature, each cherry wood canister is unique with different wood grain. With use, the surface of the tea caddy will get more lustrous and shiny. Wood is an organic material and will naturally change over time.

History: 
This tea canister is made by Fujiki Denshiro Shoten, producers of fine cherry wood craft with almost 200 years of experience.

 

Measurement:
3.25" (D) x 4.75" (H)

Materials: 
Cherry wood is harvested in August and September in the mountains of northern Japan, and is an eco-friendly material that regrows after being harvested. Cherry bark has two different types of finishes: Marble, which retains the appearance of the raw bark, and Natural, whose surface is thinly scraped and polished by hand to create a smooth and shiny surface. The surfaces of this tea caddy has a natural finish that has been hand polished by skilled craftspeople, and will grow more lustrous as you handle them daily.

Care Instructions:
Do not wash. Wipe with dry soft towel to clean. Do not get wet, or leave wet. When you wipe, wipe in the direction of the grain to get maximum luster. Not dishwasher or microwave safe.
