This is a Kintsugi restored, antique Sarreguemines jar, with a hand painted flowery pattern.
This cute jar was found with a couple of cracks and a chip and has been restored by us using the traditional Japanese method of Kintsugi. In this case we used a Japanese brass dust that's used specifically for Kintsugi or Urushi crafts.
We think this beautiful jar it's the perfect decor to brighten a corner in any home.
To repair the cracks or chips on these ceramic pieces, Urushi lacquer is used and the crack is embellished with metal dust (gold, silver, brass, copper, ... or sometimes just lacquer, offering a diverse universe of colors and finishings). Currently our pieces are mainly restored using a Japanese brass dust (looking like gold) or gold leaf. We work with real gold dust upon demand.
We love this idea behind Kintsugi of making the crack more beautiful instead of hiding it; we embrace the history of the piece in its entirety. We feel so happy to be able to bring back to life these beautiful and once loved pieces of ceramic and enhance the history of them by using this traditional Japanese technique.
Please notice that you can wash the piece, by hand, using water and soap, but make sure not to rub on the crack. Also notice that with time, the crack can get a bit of patina.
