This cute Japanese teacup features a turtle swimming smoothly. The turtle is a symbol of longevity and carrying good fortune in Japan. Kutani ware uses a brush for painting with Japanese coloring paint, as you can see the painted part is slightly thickened.
The shape is crafted by potter's wheel and you can feel the warmth and comfort to hold it in your hand. Not only drinking tea or coffee, it is also perfect for use in soups, yogurt, ice cream and many other dishes.
This cup is also available in several patterns such as pigeon, cat, pig, dragon, elephant, goldfish and rabbit.

It’s really proper Kutani. Beautiful!! The rapping (red) cloth, called “Furoshiki 風呂敷“ and the presentation is per tradition. My best friend is Japanese and I am proud to have this now in my home. Also ordering and info were perfect
