Savor the subtle beauty of Sotatsu's art while sipping from one of these porcelain Smithsonian Sotatsu Fanfare Mugs with striking fan handles. Made with gold mica to more closely emulate the original painting, they can be hand-washed only. Not microwaveable. Beautifully gift boxed.
Japanese artist Tawaraya Sotatsu (ca. 1570 – ca. 1640) is celebrated for his mastery of tarashikomi, a technique that brought to life every detail of his nuanced paintings. These exquisite accessories are adapted from his Painted Fans Mounted on a Screen in our Freer Gallery of Art.
Set of 2. Each, 4"h.; 11 oz.

"A gift for someone who can appreciate the beauty and cultural connections and who doesn't mind the con's of hand washing and not using in the microwave."

"Extremely well packed but one of two mugs arrived broken at the handle (fan). The time and money to send back not worth the investment. The way they were packed it is difficult to understand how they got broken, probably the handeling."
