New ultra rare Mount Fuji Glass made by the Edo Bana Kiriko master artisan Mr. Hiroki Meguro (*).
A Mt. Fuji Glass with cats that you would like to stare forever.
A cat and butterfly cutely jumping and playing around surrounded by fluffy dandelions.
Mr. Meguro skillfully carved the scenery by hand making it feel very dimensional.
The bottom of the glass has been carved in a very beautiful and accurate Mount Fuji.
Each glass is carefully made one by one by the Edo Kiriko craftsmen at Tajima Glass. The color of each drink you pour into the glass is reflected into Mt. Fuji, making each beverage a new experience for you to enjoy. The part you touch with your lips is thinner to make each sip better. A delicate detail to show some of the Mt. Fuji Glass beauties.
Make it a present for the people important to you.
The glass is delivered in a wooden box and wrapped in a "maneki neko" or lucky cat cloth for protection.
What is Edo Bana Kiriko?
In 1834, the Kagaya Kyubei glass craftsmen in Edo Tenmacho started using corundum crystals to carve the surface of glasses which is considered to be the beginnings of Edo Kiriko. This technique was later used to particularly carve flora and fauna in a scenic way which ultimately lead to what is nowadays known as Edo Bana Kiriko ("bana" standing for flower in Japanese).
