Continuing to create products using inherited, traditional techniques
Mori Ginki Seisakujo is a company of “Tokyo Silverware,” a traditional craft.
Tokyo Silverware is a metal craft that is mainly made in Tokyo. It was designated as a traditional national craft in 1979. The raw materials that have been used have traditionally been silver. Silver, with the purity of 92.5% or more, is used as the base metal. The history of Tokyo Silverware dates to the mid-Edo Period. Silverware artisans called silver masters and artisans called metal working masters who made combs, ornamental hairpins, and metallic parts for portable shrines appeared during this time. Silverware and silver tools were widely used even among merchants.
The techniques and skills of Tokyo Silverware have been inherited by artisans called forgers, chasers, and finishers. Most of the manufacturing is done by hand by artisans. We create various products using the skills, “forging,” “chasing,” “clipping,” and “soldering.”
There are currently two traditional artisans at our company who have inherited the tradition of Tokyo Silverware and are training artisans who will carry it through the next generation.
