S57   A pair of Yunomi by Shimaoka Tatsuzo.

A pair of ‘his and hers’ Yunomi by Tatsuzo Shimaoka.

A pair of yunomi one slightly smaller than the other is something one sees a lot in Japan. Known as meoto yunomi (meoto means ‘married couple’). Meoto yunomi usually consist of two cups with the same pattern (sometimes in different colours) but different sizes and sometimes slightly different shapes (the larger cup being the ‘husband’ and the smaller being the ‘wife’ cup).A little sexist probably!!

3.75 inches and 3.25 inches.

With a signed and sealed wooden box.
