This ceramic saké bottle features an angled vertex and a textured top half. Finished with a glossy, green glaze, this understated vase elevates any space it is housed in. Found in Kyoto at an antique market, it's a unique style that is both rare and beautiful.

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.
