Gyokusendo was founded in 1816. Over the two hundred years since, we have continued to devote ourselves to the production of hand-hammered Tsuiki copperware. After displaying our products at the 1873 Vienna International Exhibition, our copperware has won more than 30 awards at exhibitions both at home and abroad. Additionally, after presenting one of our products to the Imperial Family in 1894, it has since become customary to do so for other auspicious occasions. Our Tsuiki copperware is created by shaping vessels through the hammering and beating of a single sheet of copper. Utilizing the world’s finest coloring techniques, our products come in a diverse spectrum of colors. Gyokusendo’s Tsuiki copperware techniques are designated as a Selected Intangible Cultural Property by Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs and as an Intangible Cultural Property by Niigata Prefecture.
