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 a traditional Japanese pattern of a square and a circle, captured perfectly in this exceptionally elegant sake cup. The exterior of the pewter cup is tastefully textured, and its sturdiness provides an ideal contrast with its round mouth. An unmatched conductive property of pewter enables it to maintain beverages at delectable cool temperatures, rivaling silver in purity and taste. This is a sophisticated cup that is a pleasure to hold!
