G-type Soy Sauce / Seasoning Pot black (Tenmoku glaze)
Masahiro Mori for Hakusan 1958
(H 9.5cm x Ø Base 9.5cm x L with spout 9.5cm / Capacity 160ml recommended 100ml)
The The G-type Soy Sauce Seasoning Pot is one of Masahiro Mori's most recognized designs. It retains a beautiful balance between function and form. The design is such that the liquid does not drip from the "elephant nose" shaft when poured.
The inside is finished with white porcelain so that seasonings (soy sauce, vinegar, Maggi or favourite liquid condiment, etc.) inside can be easily seen. It features a stable bottom shape, an easy-to-grip construction, a wide mouth that makes it easy to refill and a spout that does not easily drip. Made in Japan.
