Akebono (dawn or daybreak) natsume, lacquer on plastic. This is a popular design that began in a time when red lacquer was very difficult to produce, so only a small amount was used in the design. This particular piece uses a plastic sub-form that keeps the cost down. A similar natsume for practice with a wood-form base would cost more. The buyer needs to determine which is right for them!
