M type cup & saucer
1973 | HAKUSAN PORCELAIN | Masahiro Mori
Hakusan Porcelain, a modern design company with a nearly 400-year history in Hasami, Nagasaki Prefecture, designed the M-type series in 1973 by Masahiro Mori, a fusion of Japanese and design products that proposed a novel way of thinking about traditional kyusu and earthenware bottles. Once discontinued, the series was revived in 2005.
