This is a wonderful Japanese lacquer sake bottle. It is entirely covered with high gloss black roiro lacquer. On top of the lacquer is a clean simple design in maki-e gold lacquer of a prunus tree - plum blossom - encircling the bottle from top to bottom. Where the lacquer is worn thin you can see red coming through. It has a very tiny flea bite on the base otherwise it is in very good condition. This is a real show piece.
Measures: 7" H x 4 1/2" W
Dates to early 1900's or before.
