In Japan, tinwork is a tradition that dates back over 1300 years. Officially designated a traditional handicraft, Ôsaka-Naniwa tin ware has its origins in the seventeenth century.
This 100 g (3.5 oz) tin tea caddy is decorated with floral motifs. They were produced using a paintbrush on the polished metal. Then the object was immersed in an acid solution that ate away at the surface, except where it was painted, which remained smooth and shiny. Finally, the parts that had become rough were covered in lacquer to give them their black colour.
Capacity: around 100 g (3.5 oz) of Japanese green tea
φ 6.8 cm (2.6 in) × H 11 cm (4.3 in)
