Japanese Lacquerware (Urushi) is famous for it’s simplicity and its beauty. Sap from the Japanese lacquer tree is layered on hand carved wooden dishes in a process that is time consuming and a bit dangerous. The sap is poisonous when wet so it takes great care to make these wonderful dishes. However, when finished, you get some of the most durable and long lasting wooden dishes possible. Chidori Vintage carries a wide variety of Japanese lacquerware such as trays, bowls, boxes, and many more. These dishes are very popular so grab your favorite one before its gone.
