Japan Superb Antique Hand-Carved Ceiling Hook Sculpture, 1890

$995

About

A large and finely carved antique Japanese wooden jizai gake, or pothook hanger. An Impressive sculpture in size and possessing a gorgeous patina from authentic use. These hangers were suspended with a rope from heavy beams, over the open hearth. From the hanger an adjustable hook was hung that held a kettle. Notice the grooves formed on this example result of decades of use. Best materials: black lacquered zelkova wood. Dimensions: 20 inches high and 16 inches length It is very unusual for jizaigake to be lacquered. A similar piece can be found in the Montgomery collection. Hand carved, and hand finished- hard to improve upon. Provenance: Old Nagoya collection. We have been dealing in authentic Japanese and Chinese fine art, antiquities, garden ornaments, lanterns and water basins for 25 years. Our president personally travels to China and Japan each year to meet his network partners who assist him in finding best examples. He personally inspects each antique work of art to ensure it's old age, authenticity, and quality condition. After accumulating a group, they are imported to Vermont and Maine in large containers.
