PREMIUM CHOCO956 Somenishiki Horse (Handwork)
Horses have been thought of as the vehicles of the gods. Because they kick with their hind legs, they are cherished as lucky charms to kick away bad luck. The left horse is also said to invite good fortune because the horse will not fall over if ridden from the left, and when you read the word “uma (horse)” backwards, it becomes “mau (dance at auspicious event)”. The lower part of the character for “left horse ” resembles a purse, so it is also a symbol of prosperous business and luck with money since the mouth of a purse is tightened to prevent money from leaving it.
The small plate can be used as a condiment plate when using it as a soba cup, or as a small snack plate when using it as a drinking cup. You can use it in any way you like. Keizangama has a long history of producing all sorts of soba cups. Among them, “PREMIUM CHOCO” are a cut above the rest. They use carefully selected clay, are handmade with a potter’s wheel, and each pattern is minutely painted.
