The glossy finish tea cup features two different-coloured halves; one a mottled, pale off-white and the other a burnt, sandy brown. Discovered in Kyoto and sent home to us for you to enjoy.

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.
