Imari porcelain of the Edo period featured particularly delicate and gorgeous paintings that fascinated the West and would later leave a lasting impact on the production of ceramics in Europe. Among Edo-period Imari porcelain, Enpo-era pieces are thought to be the most elegant. Based on its delicate shades and styles, Iro-e combines traditional designs with household pets.

Macaw
We have given the traditional, auspicious kachomon flower-and-bird pattern a twist by perching a brightly-colored macaw on the branch of a plum tree.

Pug
The deer and maple shika-momiji motif has long been a harbinger of autumn across many Japanese crafts. The deer, often portrayed mid-leap, is replaced with a playful, prancing pug.

Exotic Shorthair
The piercing gaze of an exotic shorthair replaces the tiger as a symbol of good luck inside this tree and flower motif. Rest assured that this cat will keep an eye on your home.

Veiled Chameleon
A chameleon adds a certain charm to the celebratory chrysanthemum pattern.

Axolotl
The traditional gyomo-mon pattern of fish and seaweed is replaced with axolotls, or Mexican salamanders, whose popularity soared in 1980s’ Japan. Do not put overglaze products in the dishwasher.

Pygmy Hedgehog
The traditional motif of a squirrel on a grapevine symbolizes fertility and longevity and has long been considered a good luck charm in Japan. Here, we’ve taken the squirrel, once a symbol of fertility due to its resemblance to the rat, and swapped it for a cute four-toed hedgehog.

The soba choco, whose trapezoidal shape has gone unchanged in the 400 years since its invention, traces its origins to Hizen (present-day Saga and Nagasaki Prefectures), which is home to the port of Imari, from which Imari porcelain spread throughout Japan.
Contrary to its name, the soba choco was never intended for soba. It was originally used as a small bowl to hold side dishes such as sashimi, salads, and shiokara preserve at celebrations and kaiseki meals. It wasn’t until the Edo period that soba become popular among the general public. People would often use their soba choco to indulge in a quick aperitif called sobamae before filling it with dipping sauce for soba, a tradition that soon caught on across Japan. Huge numbers of designs were created, reflecting the trends and culture of the eras in which they were made.
Baba Shoten fires its ceramics in the town of Hasami, Nagasaki, a cradle of porcelain manufacturing in Japan. We deliver a wide variety of soba choco that utilize a rich history of techniques unique to the Hasami area. Culture and craftsmanship in every cup.
