It is a completely domestically produced Edo Kiriko by the traditional craftsman Yasunori Kimura.
The history of Edo Kiriko began in the Edo period, and was designated as a traditional Japanese craft as a valuable craft that conveys the life of Edo to the present day.
All works are handmade by skilled craftsmen. The transparency and brilliance of the glass is maximized by applying a high degree of cutting by a traditional craftsman to the glass of pure domestic crystal glass.
I carved the traditional patterns of Edo Kiriko, "Kikutsugimon" and "Kagomemon".
The chrysanthemum connection crest is named because the finely intersecting cuts resemble a series of chrysanthemum flowers that represent immortality and longevity. The Kagome crest is a design of the basket eyes woven from bamboo and wisteria, and is said to be a symbol of "amulet".
Both are typical patterns of Edo Kiriko, and have been loved by people since ancient times because they are said to be auspicious.
