While Echizen is well-known for producing them, this particular item is an ohagurotsubo from ancient Seto. It features a fitting for hanging flowers and is a perfect small jar for wildflowers. It has been cherished and used in tea rooms. Please enjoy using it as a flower vase in your daily life. There are no leaks.
