Japanese Cherry Blossom Dishes
Inspired by the delicate colors and shapes of Japanese cherry blossoms, or sakura, this lovely set of four porcelain dishes comes with white and light pink pieces. The small dishes perfectly nest in the small bowls in this creative design and sauces poured into the small bowls also take on the beautiful bloom pattern. Bring the delight of Japanese cherry blossom viewing to your dining table and enjoy a touch of spring with friends and family.
Enjoying Your Cherry Blossom Dishes
These versatile dishes are great for tea time sweets, pairing with sushi, or holding jewelry and small trinkets. Due to their unique design, the small bowls form Japanese cherry blossom shapes when filled with soy sauce or other liquids, creating flowers that seem to bloom before your very eyes. The smaller dishes can serve as chopstick rests or be used to hold salts, spices, wasabi or ketchup.
