Mini Porcelain Food Jar
This is a miniature version of traditional food containers used to keep such food as miso, umeboshi (pickled plums), or tsukemono (Japanese pickles). Every household used to own one or more of these jars, but they fell out of favor over time and were replaced by more modern containers.
They may not be as popular as they used to be, but we love their simple shape and brick colored glaze with sandy dripping. They are perfect as salt or sugar pots or containers for paper clips and other small things in your office.
