This lovely lacquered bowl is a wonderful example of the marriage of skill and beauty, that together create the inimitable beauty of Japanese art.
The creation of lacquer requires a great deal of time and is a true product of patience and ability. The outside of the bowl is a beautiful cinnamon coloured lacquer, the indented base, is black. The interior, a rich shade of gold.
Measuring 4 5/8" in diameter and standing almost 2" in height. Although unsigned, the interior of the bowl is beautifully and skillfully decorated. Flowers and buds, a deep shade of dark mauve, enhanced with a hint of muted red, tumble in cascades from aged branches. Enlivened with green leaves and gold stamens. Perfectly proportioned, this is a design that works really well.
This bowl is in great condition for its age. There are scuff marks both to the exterior and interior of the bowl but truthfully, nothing that would detract from its beauty and quality.
