Japanese Takaoka Casting in collaboration with an original French design!
For anyone wishing to add a touch of glamour to their table, this 100% Tin glass has a floral motif and combines Japanese material with French aesthetics.
Known as the most expensive metal after gold and silver, tin is very malleable and flexible. Though having nearly the whiteness of silver, it does not rust easily nor will air tarnish it readily. It is significantly antibacterial, and also known as a material with low allergic reactivity and high heat conductivity.
It has been believed that water in a tin container does not spoil, and tin removes excessive bitterness from sake and produces better taste. Because it is known to absorb impurities and purify water, tin wares allow you to enjoy liquor, meals, sweets, or flowers.
Tin ware cooled in a refrigerator for 2-3 minutes will keep the dish fresh and cold. NOUSAKU uses pure tin. It is common to add other metallic materials to provide durability and facilitate cutting work, but NOUSAKU uses tin without such additives. Accumulated experience of skilled craftsmen enables us to produce these unique pieces.
