Tokkuri Sake bottle; new Kutani period circa 1820

SKU: Tokkuri, Large Tsuru-Kubi $295.00
The generic term for the server of a sake set is a flask called tokkuri (ja:). Tokkuri is generally bulbous with a narrow neck, but may have a variety of other shapes and sizes, including spouted serving bowls (katakuchi). They usually hold about 360 ml. of sake. Traditionally, heated sake is often warmed by placing the sake-filled tokkuri in a pan of hot water, and thus the narrowed neck would prevent the heat from escaping.
