This time, we feature Anko, a Polish tableware store in Warsaw! This is a store that is frequented by Japanese customers and has been introduced on this blog before.
I felt again that this store is the cutest in Warsaw! I felt again that this shop is the cutest in Warsaw!
Polish tableware and ceramics specialty store “Anko” at Warsaw
Anko is a store specializing in Ceramika Artystyczna, a popular manufacturer of Polish tableware.
I’ve been to a number of Polish tableware stores in Warsaw recently, and Anko was the best.
The inside of the store is just so… cute! No wonder it is the go-to place for Japanese customers.
It’s a bit far from the tourist area, but if you like Polish tableware, you should definitely go there ^^.

|address (e.g. of house)||Antoniego Malczewskiego 46A, 02-622 Warszawa, Poland|

Polish Tableware for Beginners Small Articles
I’m interested in Polish tableware, but I don’t know where to start…
If so, why not start with reasonably priced and sized accessories?
Anko had all sorts of knick-knacks that were just too cute!
In addition to the ones placed next to the cash register, if you request a particular shape or pattern from the clerk, he or she will bring it out from the back of the store.
Small plates from Ceramica’s popular Princess series. Cute…
A small dish from the frog series that has recently started to appear. This one is also cute…
The price is high because the design is called “unicut,” which can only be made by selected designers.
Popular among the Japanese! Chopstick rests on Polish tableware
Japanese people often buy chopstick rests!
Anna, the manager, told me so. We have a wide variety ^^.
I also bought two small birds.
It is not bulky and reasonably priced, so it would make a good souvenir.
Popular ♪ Christmas tree in an apple pot
Japanese people who visit Anko and love Polish tableware often buy apple pots and Christmas trees.
The Christmas tree can also be used as a candle holder.
In addition to the tree, there were a variety of ornaments.
What caught my attention was the bovine milk pitcher!
It is a very surreal product that allows you to pour milk into a cup from the half-open mouth of a cow with its tummy part (lol).
Royalty of Polish Tableware Mugs & Cups
Quite a few Anko mugs & cups!
I took a picture of the lineup.
These are just a few of the mugs and cups in the store! There are so many that it’s hard to find the right one.
Even if the design you are looking for is not available in the storeroom, you may find it in the back of the store when you ask the clerk.
There were cups that looked completely like teacups and others that looked like they could be used to drink beer.
There’s more! Unicut Mugs & Cups
At the back of the store is a corner with delicately designed products called “unicuts.
They had mugs & cups there too!
Easy-to-use No.1 tableware, small bowls & bowls
A wide selection of easy-to-use small bowls and bowls are also available.
Simple small bowls are nice, but I prefer the ones with a lopsided rim.
Many more ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓.
I got the impression that Namami had more subdued designs.
They even had a small bowl of sea urchin cuttings! The design is very elaborate.
The design with small white dots on a blue background is often bought by Japanese people. It seems to go well with Japanese food, doesn’t it?
The design looks simple at first glance, but the craftsmanship of pressing the extremely small stamps one by one in a well-balanced manner shines through.
It could also be used for bowls of rice or bowls for boys who are in the mood to eat.
This deep bowl is also good for ramen bowls.
Plates & Gratin Dishes with a lot of character
And last but not least, we have the plate and the gratin dish!
There were many things that could be used for many purposes other than their original purpose ^^.
Such enjoyment of Polish tableware is one of the best parts of Polish tableware.
How to get to the store
I would like to add that the location of the restaurant is a bit confusing.
A five-minute walk from the “Wierzbno” metro station will take you to this street.
Proceed in the direction of the red arrow and you will see a narrow passageway.
The store at the end of the aisle is Anko.
Anna, the manager, is very friendly and nice! She also speaks fluent English.
If you tell them you are taking it home on the plane, they will wrap it in plastic wrap.
