Description

A lunch box in the style of a traditional Kokeshi character, comprising two stacking food containers, one with a sealable lid, and a food bowl. The stack of three pieces is held together with an elasticated band. Manufactured in Japan by Hakoya in 2016, this bento set is made from injection moulded ABS and hand decorated. The face and other details are silk screen printed by hand, a skilled and time-consuming process.
