Japanese Big Hand Carved Boat Fune, Ikebana or Sushi Anyone

$388

About

Fresh find from our recent Japanese acquisitions travels This big old hand carved wooden boat -fune- including a hand fitted wooden slat interior and brass riveted exterior was likely once used decades ago as a flower arranging display vessel - ikenobu fune- or as likely for sushi presentation. Its substantial size suggests an institutional purpose. Either way it is an historic gem and a seldom seen size and work of art. Dimensions: each boat is 42 inches in length and 13 inches wide This dates to the 20th century Quality: Stunningly beautiful in its well used nautical form with traces of old lacquer. We currently have one pair available. Provenance: Private Japanese Otsu collection. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity. All our Asian works of art are accompanied by our lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
