These yunomi are 3.5" and 3.25" high, signed, with tomobako. They are decorated with flowers around entire yunomi, one pink and one blue flower on each, on a deep purple glaze. I had not seen a set like this before, with incised/recessed decoration over large areas. Not sure what technique was used to do this, but it must have required very painstaking craftsmanship to accomplish. There is a lot going on with these seeming simple yunomi. These yunomi are used but in mint condition and I don't think they are very old. I have not yet put any effort into identifying the maker. They fairly heavy for their size even though they appear to be deceptively thin.
