A stunning boxed set of sake cups decorated with shishi lions frolicking among blossoming peonies upon thick golden rocks, the flora wrapping around the outside of each cup. The technique is unparalleled. A look at the detail photos will say more than I can about this incredible set. They are 9 cm (3-1/2 inches) diameter and both are in excellent condition. They come wrapped in antique silk pouches enclosed in a period compartmentalized lacquered wooden storage box dating from the late Edo to early Meiji period, 19th century.
