Magnetic Pin or Needle Holder
Shigaraki ware pottery with a button motif, made by Meizan Gama, a ceramics manufacturer founded in 1622 in Koka, Shiga Prefecture.
Magnets are inserted in the buttons, allowing you to use these items as small pin cushions when you want to give your needles a rest. They can also be used as paperclip holders or decorative magnets, or even enjoyed as interior ornaments or stationery items that add color to your living space.
Buttons are 1" wide (2.5cm) and 1/2" tall (1.5cm)
