Japanese Midcentury Green Lacquer Bowl in Original Signed Box, circa 1960s


This stylish Mid-Century Modern platter is crafted by lacquerware artist (urushi shokunin) Yoshiteru Minami (1921-2006) whose work is held in the collection of The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. The subtle variation in tones of lacquer, which range from black to teal to sea-green enhance the optical effect of the sensuous concave surface of this irregular shaped oval platter. A light aqua brush stroke embedded in lacquer in the base of the bowl shows the gesture of the artist hand. Renowned for its’ exceptional finish and durability, the art of using lacquer and decorating wooden objects has developed in Japan to a degree of technical and artistic refinement that is unsurpassed in the world. The platter is signed on the base and comes in its original box which is also signed. Platter measures irregular diameter longest width: 45cm x narrowest width: 37cm x height: 9.5cm. The interior of the bowl is 8cm deep. Box measures width 47cm x depth 38.5cm x height 13cm.
