Old Japanese Folk Art / Farmer's Tools Made of Bark / Vase / Flower Basket



It is a tool made by thinning the bark of a tree and knitting it. This is a bag to put a hatchet for peeling the bark of a tree. I think it was a tool used from the Meiji era to the early Showa era (1900-1940). It is used very often and has a nice atmosphere. There are some places where the bark of the tree is cut. How about decorating it on the wall and arranging flowers? It is nice to use it as a single wheel. I also prepared a copper pipe. Put water in this and put it in this bag. This is one of the nicest and most wonderful hatchet bags I have ever seen. In Japan, such things are becoming less and less common. I think it is my mission to convey the charm of such old things and keep them. There are few stores that sell such items at 1st dibs. I sell with confidence. body size W10 D5 H24cm (height including the first string in the photo 41cm) ?Note? Since it is an antique item, there are small scratches and defects. Please use it carefully as it is old. Please consent in advance.
