These remarkable thin drinking glasses are carefully hand crafted by master craftsmen from Japan. The manufacturer of this glass company was established in 1922 and first started off by manufacturing the glass portion of the electric light bulbs. Since then, they have developed the “Usuhari glass” series based on the knowledge they gained from making the glass for the electric light bulb. The feel of it in your hands, and how fine the rim is are all exquisite and unique to this glass alone. These glasses appear to be extremely delicate but it can be handled with the usual care as other glassware.
The nub on the bottom of this glass is specifically designed to maximize the aroma and taste of Japanese rice wine. However, it will work with any other type of wines as well.
