The elegant Ginsai Bowl is handcrafted by Japanese artisan Atushi Funakushi. The meticulously shaped bowl features a fine ridge running around the outer edge.

Ginsai is developed from pure silver and blackens when exposed to air. Prior to the initial use it is recommended to soak in lukewarm water for up to one hour. Handwashing is recommended. Not safe for microwave or oven use. Acidic food is not recommended.
