    Quality Japanese lacquer wares at reasonable prices

    Lacquer has a unique texture and warmth that only a natural material can offer.  The longer you use the lacquered ware, the more luster it gains and the deeper the color becomes.  Uruwashiya mainly offered Japanese lacquer wares from the end of the 19th to the early 20th century, ranging from Wajima-nuri from Kanazawa to Kyo-nuri from Kyoto.  “Lacquer wares for daily life.”  Based on this concept, they offer modern lacquer wares in good condition.  Seasonal flowers, swallows, bees and a wide range of designs will make you take time to choose one.  There are some gorgeous wares with decorations using real gold and silver as well as colored wares.  For the display, the owner artistically arranges a combination of lacquer wares and silver or ceramic wares.  The owner, Akemi Horiuchi, says, “Some people feel lacquer wares are too formal to use in daily life, but it’s not formal at all.  All you have to remember is not to wash them with hot water or in a dish washer.”  Why not bring lacquer wares onto your daily table for everyday dishes as well as for special occasions?
