Destined to grace the homes of connoisseurs and collectors, every elegant sculptural piece is handcrafted of Tilis Japonica wood seasoned for more than three years after being cut. Each piece is then finished with expertly applied coats of lacquer obtained from the refined sap of the Japanese lacquer tree (a very precious commodity as only 200 grams are available from each tree). Detailed with shimmering satiny surfaces and gilded touches, including our Golden Fleece® logo. Presented in a beautiful gift box. Each 10½" long. No item in this collection is designed for use in a dishwasher or in microwave or conventional ovens. Imported.
