Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
Houen is an archetypal Japanese pattern that reunites a square and a circle in a harmonious design. Featuring a stable square base, a circular mouth, and an unadorned matte exterior, this 2合 pitcher offers a pleasant tactile sensation that urges you to have more. Graced with the second-to-none taste of pewter, rivaled only by silver, and a remarkable ability to retain a cool temperature, it strikes an exquisite balance between sophistication and comfort.
