The Joy of the Demitasse Cup
The exhibition features approximately 400 pieces carefully selected from a collection of over 2000 antique demitasses. Unique cups and saucers are introduced, focusing on works that incorporate Japonisme, Art Nouveau and Art Deco which were popular in Europe in the late 19th century when many demitasses began to be made. Please enjoy the world of antique demitasse, where the craftsmanship and thoughtfulness of the creator are squeezed into a palm-sized cup.

A “demitasse” is a cup for drinking strong coffee. “Demi” means half and “tasse” means cup in French, which means “small cup (demi-tasse).
As a coffee drinker for a long time, I was attracted to the beauty of demitasses and started collecting them little by little. I started to fully collect them as an antique collection around 2006, and I currently have over 2,200 pieces. The collection is mainly from 19th and 20th century England, France and Germany. It focuses on both famous brands and quaint pieces that are still obscure in Japan.
