Joyful maple leaves in gold and silver float on the festrive red surface of this set of three stacking lacquered cups dating from the later Edo period. The larger cup is 12.5 cm (roughly 5 inches) diameter and they are in overall fine condition. They come in a paper lined black lacquered wooden box. There are a couple stable cracks in the wood substrate visible as ridges in the lacquer of the largest bowl (see close-up photos).
