This is a beautiful, complete nodate set consisting of the nodate (basket), chawan (cup), chashaku (tea scoop), natsume, (powdered tea container) and a chasen (whisk) . The bamboo tube, which attaches to the drawstring, contains the whisk and a folding tea scoop, while the bag holds the cup and natsume. The nodate is used for personal outdoor tea ceremonies, perfect for restoring inner harmony and peace. All you need is a thermos of hot water, your nodate, and a favorite place! The Japanese sometimes take a nodate to the cemetery and share a peaceful moment with departed loved ones. The measurements are as follows; CUP: 3 3/4" wide x 3" high. NATSUME: 2 1/4" wide x 2 1/4" high. WHISK: 3 1/4" high. SCOOP: 3 1/2" long, and NODATE: 5" square x 4" high. The nodate and tools date to the 1950's. The bamboo tube holding the tools is missing the metal staples that would normally attach it to the drawstring and the whisk has an age crack in the handle. The chawan dates to the 1930's and the natsume to the 1920's. The Chawan and natsume are in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
