I have a soup bowl that has traditional Japanese style and I've used it over 20 years.
It is plastic and it looks like traditional vermilion lacquered bowl.
But now, it is worn out. It is just a plastic, so it seems very shabby.
So I bought some real lacquered soup bowls that were made in the Taisho period, they are around 100 years old, but they are still beautiful.
Moreover, that were only 10 for 2, 000 yen, about 18 dollars.
Old things are attractive.
俺は日本風の汁椀をもう20年も使っている。
それはプラスチックで出来ていて朱塗りの椀の様に見える。
だが今は、擦り切れて、単にプラスチックの椀なので、とてもみすぼらしく見える。
なので、大正時代の、本漆塗りの汁碗をいくつか買った。だいたい100年くらい前のモノだが、今でも美しい。
しかもなんと、10個で2000円(18ドルくらい)だった。
古いモノは良い。
