This item is a Hanaire (花入れ). It is a container to hold seasonal flowers displayed at a tea ceremony. Materials of Hanaires include metals such as bronze, ceramics, bamboo, and gourds. There are several categories for Hanaire: Oki Hanaire (置き花入れ, placed in an alcove), Kake Hanaire (掛け花入れ, hung on a wall), Tsuri Hanaire (つり花入れ, suspended from the ceiling). We choose flowers in season, but we value how they bloom in nature without making them stand out.
The Hanaire we introduce here is pottery. The person engraved on this Hanaire is probably Daikokuten (大黒天). He is a member of the Shichifukujin (七福神, the Seven Gods of Good Fortune). He usually brings a large bag and a straw rice bag. People worship him as a God of treasure, good luck, and business success. He is also considered to control agriculture; people pray for rich harvests to this God. Please enjoy decorating with flowers according to the season.
