This is a cup, dish, or piece of tableware.
From Toyo Seimitsu comes this "Sousan-samonji" sword coaster, that is designed to look like a samurai sword's guard (tsuba), which is placed on a sword to separate the user's hand from the sharp blade. This coaster can be used for display purposes, or can be used for its intended purpose. Detailed to mirror guards that were used historically, this guard is about 0.8cm in depth.
