Unusual Cinnabar Colored Earthenware Hibachi w. Cover and Ying Yang Symbol Japan



Unusual Cinnabar colored Earthenware Hibachi with cover from the Showa Period in Japan. The design is of a Deity or Goddess, possibly Ame-no-Uzume, floating among the clouds with Mt. Fuji in the distance. Ame-no-Uzume is a very positive Kami, a Shinto spirit, and is the goddess of dawn, arts and revelry. The clouds are a symbol of hope, good omen and proximity to the Gods. Mt. Fuji is considered sacred to the Japanese and is a symbol for quest of beauty and perfection. The Hibachi has also an unusual feature and that is the raised and hollow ceramic protuberance with the Ying Yang symbol on the inside center of the brazier. Putting all symbolism together this a highly positive piece if ceramic. The overglaze cinnabar red color has been applied over a charcoal black clay. The design has been incised on the body. In very good condition with minor paint loss, see images. A Hibachi is an earthenware brazier in which charcoal is burned to provide indoor heating. Before WWII, hibachis were common in Japanese homes but now they are usually seen in some traditional ceremonies and festivals. Nowadays they can be use as large incense burners, jardinières, planters or even fish bowls. Measurements: 11 1/2 inches diameter x 9 1/4 inches high.
