This antique shochu bottle was made in Gifu, Japan in the Taisho period. It features a dark glazed body with a beige neck and rope detailing. Originally used as a vessel for holding sake and shochu, these days we would use it as a vase or as a stand alone display piece.

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.
