This Japanese Tea Caddy NATSUME w Hatsune is a luxury item crafted with pure gold. Traditional Japanese craftsmanship techniques such as the Hatsume pattern and engraving techniques are used in its production. An exquisite item for any tea ceremony.

The Hatsune pattern is a traditional Japanese motif featuring overlapping circles or crescents arranged in a symmetrical pattern. The circles or crescents are typically arranged in a way that resembles sound waves, which is where the name "Hatsune" comes from (hatsu means "first" and ne means "sound" or "voice").
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the Hatsuon pattern also has a symbolic meaning in Japanese culture. It is believed to represent harmony and unity, as the overlapping circles or crescents suggest a blending of different elements or ideas. It is also said to bring good luck and prosperity to those who use or display it.

The Raden technique is a traditional Japanese decorative craft that involves the use of inlaid mother-of-pearl to create intricate and beautiful designs on various objects. The technique is believed to have originated in China and was introduced to Japan in the Nara period (710-794).

The process of creating a Raden design involves cutting thin strips of mother-of-pearl and arranging them on the surface of an object in a pattern or design. The mother-of-pearl is then inlaid into the object using a special adhesive, and the surface is polished to create a smooth and even finish. The result is a stunning design that shimmers and changes color depending on the angle of the light.

Raden is often used to decorate traditional Japanese crafts such as lacquerware, pottery, and furniture. It is also used in the creation of traditional musical instruments such as shamisen and koto.

The Raden technique requires a high degree of skill and precision, as the mother-of-pearl pieces are very delicate and must be cut and arranged with great care. The process can take several weeks or even months to complete, depending on the complexity of the design. The result, however, is a beautiful and timeless work of art that showcases the beauty and craftsmanship of traditional Japanese culture.
