With a round body with unique shaped spout this simple design small pot is made for liquid sauces container to go on the dining table. There are two sizes, a taller one is called Vinegar Pot and the smaller one Soy Sauce Pot. This listing is for Vinegar Pot.

Designed by one of the leading Tokyo designers Osamu Saruyama and crafted in Hasami, Nagasaki prefecture of Kyushu island, the vinegar pot is made with white, beautiful and smooth porcelain using natural porcelain stone sauced in the Amakusa region in Kumamoto, Kyushu.

To achieve the spout that does not give residual drips is what is the most desired feature for liquid seasoning container. It took Azmaya team three years to finally found the perfect shape that can prevent excess dripping of sauces after each pouring. 

The Vinegar Pot is not just for vinegar, but is also great for any kind of liquid sauces if they are light and smooth such as olive oil, citrus juice, Asian fish sauce, etc. The body and the lid are glazed separately and fired at high temperature covering the glaze completely, so the color or the smell would not stay inside or around the edges.

There is also a smaller size of this sauce container Soy Sauce Pot-->
