Toyo-Sasaki - Indent Carafe Hand Made in Japan
Hand made in Japan by master craftsmen, this delightful glass carafe is crafted from lead-free crystal. It is specially designed with a deep ovular indent blown into the side of the carafe as an ice pocket – keeping your beverage chilled without watering it down. A functional detail that doubles as a beautiful aesthetic feature in itself (ice not compulsory!). It measures 107dia x 184h mm and holds 550ml. This carafe is traditionally designed to hold sake, but it is equally suitable for water, a demi bottle of wine, juice, flowers...anything.
Located in Yachiyo, Chiba prefecture (near Tokyo), Toyo-Sasaki Glass was established when two of the oldest glass manufacturing companies in Japan merged – Toyo (est. 1878) and Sasaki (est. 1902). TSG's hand-made glassware production is led by Certified Traditional Japanese Craftmasters, a prestigious prefectural title for artisans who have attained the highest level of skill and knowledge on traditional Japanese regional heritage crafts (requiring at least 15 years of glassmaking experience).
