Tin working is a Japanese craft with traditions that date at least back to the Nara Era, 1300 years ago. Originating in the seventeenth century, Ôsaka-Naniwa tin was designated a traditional craft in 1983.
This tea caddy was handmade with incredible precision: its cover closes perfectly hermetically. Moreover, since tin has no smell, it is an ideal choice for keeping Japanese green tea.
The undulating circles that wreathe this tea caddy are very simple, and the outside of the caddy has a rough surface produced by dipping the object in an acid solution. A coat of red lacquer gives the work its colour.
Capacity: around 100 g (3.5 oz) of Japanese green tea
φ 6.8 cm (2.6 in) × H 10.5cm (4 in)
