Shoyu Sashi Series - A Special Reprinted Edition
This is a special reprinted edition of Hirota Glass' Soy Sauce Cruet from the 1930's, that is incredibly nostalgic due to the vintage glass design. The glass itself is slightly tinted, as a color "kodaishoku," an ancient Japanese term to describe the amber hue, indicates.
The spout was redesigned to prevent unnecessary spillage, making for better use. The top of the spout is embossed with Hirota's traditional sparrow logo. Fill the glass with soy sauce or any other liquid condiment of your choice, such as vinegar or olive oil.
We offer three classic designs: Kagome (Bamboo basket pattern), Sakura (Cherry blossom pattern) and Kikumon (Flower petal pattern).
Authentic Tokyo Glassware
Founded in 1899 by Kinta Hirota in Kinshi, Sumida ward, Tokyo, Hirota Glass has established itself as one of the pioneers of Japanese glassware. Now the company is under the 4thgeneration glassmaker, Tatsuro Hirota, and has evolved its own signature style through harmonizing traditional European glass techniques with Japanese artistry. Hirota Glass stays true to its classic designs and influences dating back to the pre-war period, continuing to push hand-crafted glass to its artistic limits.
