A staple in any Asian meal is the soup. It's a starter and the first impression of the meal to come. Lacquered bowls for soup are the ideal choice for all types of soups, noodles and stews. Made from a strong high quality resin, these distinctive Japanese lacquer bowls have a deep rich scarlet red inside and a beautiful hand painted oriental patterns on the outside.
Besides using them for soup, they also make perfect serving bowls for other things like salads or appetizers - the black or red interior surface makes a dramatic colour statement.
Bowl is decorated with charming moon and rabits image.
In Japan, the rabbit has been favored in many forms of art: drawings and paintings, ceramics and textile and chosen as a motif in all manner of crafts and confections since early times. It continues to make appearances in a wide variety of contexts today, from art to women’s accessories. Motif of rabbits appears in association with the moon, waves, and autumn plants in traditional arts and crafts. Rabbits only drive on forward and don’t step back, so they have been considered lucky as a symbol of advancement. Also, the rabbit is a symbol of cleverness and self-devotion, and appears in myths. In old days, it was a symbol of Spring.
