A Set for Japanese Tea Ceremony

The “Material Monuments” collection of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov is added with a set for Japanese tea ceremony. It was presented to M.A.Sholokhov during his visit to Japan in 1966.

The set includes 11 pieces mostly handmade.

Each piece plays its role in tea ceremony. Khishaku is a ladle to pour the finished drink into cups. Chasen is a whisk for stirring tea during its preparation and a stand for it. Chashaku is a bamboo teaspoon to add dry tea. Natsume is a ceramic bowl for making tea. Kensu is a vessel to drain water. Fukusa is a piece of cloth for cleaning cups before the ceremony.

Besides, the set includes three packing boxes for tea. All the pieces are kept in a special wooden case with sliding shelves to place each of them.
