This pair of wine cups are decorated with a traditional clematis pattern.
Each cup is decorated with "Aochibu" and "Shirohchibu", which is a painting technique that began in the Taisho era, and each one is covered with small dots.
The gold clematis flowers are vividly drawn on the base plate, giving it a luxurious look.
The brass stem and porcelain cup are amazingly balanced, and it gives strength as well as beauty. It may just seem like a regular wine glass, however you can also enjoy other drinks as well like Sake.
