Hario V60 coffee set up. Includes range server, V60 ceramic drip and the Buono kettle. $85.00 for all three.

SOLDJapanese Hand Hammered copper tea storage tin. Comes in original storage box. Copper tea scoop. $35.00 I have 2 of these for sale. Capacity is about 8 oz. loose tea. Good condition. Has some very light scuff marks on the bottom. Price quoted is for one.
SOLDSet of Japanese coasters. Made in the 40,s Cherry wood. Perfect size for small size cups. Actually, these were intended for sake. They seem to be quite dusty in this pic. Made I should have cleaned them up a bit before taking these pics. Keep in mind that these are about 70 years old. And while they have certainly been used there is no damage of any sort. $35.00 There are 5 coasters inside the wood box. I personally think these are really cool. Probably not for a person that wants their wears in pristine condition.

SOLDPair of Red Shino cups by Petr Novak. Used but in like new condition. No damage. $20.00 for the pair.
SOLDThis Matcha bowl came to me through a friend. The story goes that she had found this in her fathers attic after he had passed away. He had been stationed in Japan after the war. She had said that her father was not a tea drinker and she never knew that he had this bowl or ever heard it mentioned by her father. Whether this story is true or not I have no way of knowing. But the box that the bowl was found in is the same one in the picture, it does appear to be very old, almost grey in color. There is no makers mark on the bowl and I have only used it a couple of times. No damage, wear, or stains. $20.00
The ribbon on the box is not original. The one that was originally on the box had deteriorated to the point of no longer being functional.
