Designed to hold glowing embers, hibachi vessels were used for cooking or as a source of heat in Japanese homes. Placed under a low wood kotatsu table with an open slat top, the hibachi functioned as a grill and created a cozy gathering place for the family. This early 20th-century hibachi is comprised of a cylindrical copper liner set within a red lacquer chrysanthemum-form frame. The red lacquer exterior is decorated small amounts of contrasting black lacquer, brushed vertically for a blurred effect. A beautiful example of Japanese lacquer (urushi), this elegant hibachi makes an ideal jardinière for orchids and lush greenery.

Lacquer is in very good condition with only minor blemishes.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.
