This set includes tokkuri and two sake cups with an interesting and cute Japanese traditional mask design.
The tokkuri represents Okame, face or mask of a woman who has a short nose and swollen round cheeks. Okame represents a lovely, always smiling Japanese woman who brings happiness and good fortune.
The cups also feature traditional mask design, one being the Okame smiling face, while the other is a a comical Japanese character, known as Hyottoko. His mouth is puckered and skewed to one side. Okame is like the female version of Hyottoko, and their masks usually appear together. The two of them together are considered to be the gods of family happiness, and they are also used as good luck charms in the designs of teacups.
