This Japanese Usushi-Nuri Shikki 漆器 or lacquerware pedestal kashiki was made by the famous Akira Hyoetsu Miki III about 30 years ago. He is the son of Atsushi or Hyoetsu Miki II, and they are a famous family of Kyoto painters and lacquerware decorators. Usushi-Nuri is just one of many types of work intensive lacquerware, and more details can be found on Wikipedia's page about Japanese lacquerware. Kashiki is the Japanese word for a dish used for serving desserts at the tea ceremony, this one with a nice pedestal. It is a beautiful salmon-coral color with cool highlights and random strokes of gold painting. It has age appropriate wear from use but no cracks or chips, and none to the wood.
