These traditional Masu Cups were originally used as measures for rice....One standard Masu Cup of dry rice per person was a traditional portion.  Over time Masu became popular containers to use for serving cold sake.   Masu can also serve as desk or kitchen organizers, containers for garlic, seeds or nuts;  unique serving bowls for ice cream or sorbet; or for flower arrangement for table, window or shelf.

Classic tight finger joinery makes these durable and attractive.   Unfinished natural wood, it is recommended these be hand rinsed and hand dried.    2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 2" ht
