This tea caddy is made of Natural wood and coated with half-transparent lacquer. The original wooden box with the singnature of the artisan is also included. (About Shunkei lacquer ware) The origins of this distinctive lacquer ware were the result of a chance discovery. At the beginning of the 17th century, a head carpenter who worked on the building of temples and shrines in the castle town of Takayama, was surprised to find that when he literally peeled a piece of sawara cypress apart, it produced an interesting textural effect. He made it up into a tray and lightly lacquered the surfaces. Because the coloring of this tray resembled the hishunkei, a well-known tea ceremony tea jar of the potter, Kato Kagemasa, the name shunkei was adopted for this unusual type of lacquer ware. Many of the articles produced are skillfully bent into shape or assembled from thin boards. But what makes Hida Shunkei lacquer ware so special is the way that the beauty of the surface of the wood is brought out by the application of a transparent coating of lacquer. It is produced by a special method from raw natural lacquer and used to coat the wood. The technique is still used today in the making of many household articles such as trays, boxes of many kinds, tea ceremony items and small tables. There are 95 firms employing some 250 skilled specialists, 31 of which are nationally recognized as Master Craftsmen. 2) SHIPPING COST a) USA, CANADA, MIDDLE EAST (Except Israel) , New Zealand REGISTERED SAL US$8.8 EMS US$20.0 b) EUROPE ZONE 1 : UK, FRANCE and other countries except Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Romania, Hungary, Israel, Ireland REGISTERED SAL US$8.8 EMS US$22.0 c) EUROPE ZONE 2 : Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Romania, Hungary, Israel, Ireland REGISTERED SAL Not available REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$9.8 EMS US$22.0 d) ASIA (Except Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam) REGISTERED SAL US$7.2 EMS US$14.0 e) Australia REGISTERED SAL Not available REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$9.8 EMS US$20.0 f) Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam REGISTERED SAL Not available REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$8.8 EMS US$14.0 g) AFRICA, SOUTH AMERICA REGISTERED SAL US$10.4 EMS US$24.0 3) ABOUT SHIPPING METHODS a) REGISTERED SAL Estimated Delivery time About 3 - 4 weeks (Sometime more than 1 month) Pakcet has a tracking nubmer Insurence (Maximum 6000 JPY (about US$60) /packet b) EMS Estimated Delivery time About 1 weeks Pakcet has a tracking nubmer (On-line tracking information service) Full insurence Registered SAL shipment servise is NOT AVAILABLE for parcels to Taiwan, South Korea, Germany, Australia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Romania, Hungary, Vietnam and some other countries.
