This old saké bottle was found at an antique market in Kyoto, Japan. Originally used to decant rice wine, we would nowadays use this as a vase or to have on display as a solo piece around the home.

Our friend Kingy is based in Kyoto with her husband and baby daughter. She trawls through antique markets and hidden vintage stores in the area to find us amazing goodies.

Kingy is a photographer by trade and shoots the pieces she finds in her parent-in-law's old machiya in town.
