[Handling Precautions]
*Decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles etc: In places with bad stability,​ safely take proper care when setting and take measures to prevent falling.
*When storing,​ lightly wipe dry with a soft cloth to remove dirt and carefully store,​ especially for ornaments that use gold and silver.
*The bases of Kutani ware items are not coated with glaze. Minimal polishing has been performed but scratches may occur in places that come into direct contact with it. Take care when using on soft or easily damaged surfaces such as alcoves ("Toko-no-ma"),​ flower tables,​ shelves,​ tables and lacquer-finished surfaces,​ and be sure to lay something underneath.
*Vases,​ decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles and other decorative items: In respects to aesthetics,​ finely colored decorative paint may be used. Refrain from using as tableware.
*For vases,​ especially ceramics (pottery): Should sealing treatment be insufficient,​ water may ooze out on rare occasions. Should water leaking occur,​ please contact the customer center.
*Using abrasive sponges,​ nylon or metallic scourers,​ cleansers etc may cause the gold,​ silver,​ paint or adhesive to peel off and damage the surface,​ so refrain from using.
*Do not use for anything other than its intended purpose.
