A smoke stained Susu-dake bamboo wrist rest carved with the waxing moon suspended over a bat hovering around the upper branches of a Bonsai pine tree rooted in a shallow basin on a table. A streak of pale bamboo shows where rope had once been wrapped around the ancient bamboo pole, and the artist has chosen to use this as a feature to intimate mist. It is 7 x 2 x 1/2 inch (118 x 4.5 x 1.5 cm) and is in fine condition. Susu-dake, literally soot-stained bamboo, is bamboo which has been harveste... Click for details

This is a Buddhist Okimono made of joined pieces of wood and covered with gold leaf gilt on the clothing - it dates to the late Edo period, circa 1800-1820s. The small figure measures 3.5" high by 2.9" wide by 2.6" deep and is in excellent condition - there are a couple of nicks on the back of the garment and some rubbing of the gilding on his robe. It weighs under 2 ounces as the wood has long since lost its moisture content. The head, neck and hands are not gilded but are left in the plain woo... Click for details

A mischievous Shojo sprite pads forward with a long dipping scoop over his shoulder, a huge pot behind (likely filled with rice wine as the Shojo is very fond of drink). Opposite a long inscription fills the open area. The pottery vessel is deeply carved into the bamboo with the Shojo in relief before it. The piece is 5-1/2 inches (14 cm) tall, roughly -3/4 inches (7 cm) diameter at the base and dated 1901. The bamboo is a rich amber red, lighter in the carved section, with a fixed wooden ba...

Ichiban Japanese and Oriental Antiques
203.272.7392



 

This is a very handsome 500 year old okimono (figure) of a Buddhist Priest in a sitting position. It dates from the late Momoyama period (1568-1600) to the early Edo period, circa 1600-1700. We think that the piece is a representation of a priest by the headdress he wears. The okimono measures 9 1/2 " high by 7 " wide by 5 1/2" deep. In general, the figure is in good condition for a wooden piece this old. The man's hands were lost at some point in time and the loss of the colorful paint that o... Click for details

A very nice wooden carving of a young woman or girl looking in her mirror. Beautiful detail - a lovely face and fine detailing to her kimono and sash. The mirror she holds is removable - amazing that it is still with the piece and not lost. Measures 4 ½" high x 3 ¾' wide x 3 ¾" deep. Excellent condition except for the crack in the front of the piece just below the sash. The crack was there when I obtained the piece fifteen years ago and has never gotten any wider. Believed to date from the late ... Click for details
