Red Cross Sakazuki ???

Recommended Posts

Good morning to you all, dear colleagues
I present to you a sakasuki which seems to me to be of the red cross, inside the box in kiri is a small patriotic flag.
It seems to me that the big kanji at the center of the cup 誠 means: integrity, sincerity or fidelity .
The diameter of this SAKAZUKI is 12.5cm and the weight is 35g.
The manufacturer’s label is still under the lid of the box, but unfortunately I don’t know how to translate it...
If anyone can tell me more about this object.............. I’m willing

This urushi was made by a famous Kinto lacquerware store, Tokyo.

きん藤漆器店(日本橋2丁目)


 初代創業はさだかではありませんが、弘化2年(1845)頃埼玉から江戸へ出て、当時日本橋通南2丁目付近の横丁通称19文横丁に店を出しているうちに近くの太物商(反物)近江屋を譲り受けて屋号を、近江屋の近と小林藤右衛門の藤とを組合わせて「近藤」と名乗りましたが「コンドウ」と間違えられるところから、明治40年に「きん藤」と改めて漆器専門店に専念し、表通りに面して店舗を構え、神奈川・埼玉・千葉など近県にも積極的に販路を拡張して財をなしました。
大正の震災後昭和4年に近代的な鉄筋5階建のビルを新築し、1階は一般漆器、2階は有名作家の作品等高級漆器を陳列し観賞や商談のロビーとして使用していたが、昭和20年3月の空襲で罹災し21年に福井市の加藤氏に譲渡して廃業しております。

Hi Nick,

Once again, thank you for all this information.

Everything can be no more precise or detailed.

Everything is there !!

The photo of the small booklet on the lacquer shop with its history is also very interesting.
very cordially

Patout
