Joy of the Demitasse Cup

Japan and Asia’s love of tea spread to the West in the 16th and 17th centuries, bringing with it a new era of tableware and culinary culture. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the demitasse cup came onto the scene for drinking coffee— and many designs took from the Japanese aesthetic. This exhibition covers the 2,000 gorgeous demitasse cups of the 19th and 20th centuries, giving a unique look into the styles and preferences of the time.

When: June 10–Aug. 27 Where: Museum of Ceramic Art, 4 Kamidatekui, Imada-cho, Tamba Sasayama-shi, Hyogo Prefecture Cost: ¥1,200
