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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
