Japanese Antique 100 Year Old Bronze Hibachi Ikebana Vase Chokin Treasure Ship For Sale

Japanese Antique 100 Year Old Bronze Hibachi Ikebana Vase Chokin Treasure Ship

Aunique Japanese bronze vase (hibachi) from thelate Meiji Era (c. 1900). It is a heavy bronze with elephant shaped handles.The sailboat design on the front is done in a style called chokin ("metal engraving").

Chokin is the ancient Japanese art of engravingbronze and gilding it with precious gold and silver. This art form dates back over 700 years in Japan. The engravings were originally created to decorateshrines, temples and the armament of samurai warriors.

The inlaid gold and silver art work depicts a large sailboat with seagulls flying overhead. This ship is the mythical treasure ship of the pantheon of 7 gods of luck in Japanese folklore. These gods would travel together on New Year's Eve to various human ports to dispense happiness. On the back side you can see two more small sailboats on the water.

This was originally used as a space heater and had a bed of ash on which charcoal would sit. You can see the line on the interior where the ashlevel once came (see picture 7).The lower section slopes gracefully in and then flares out to a form a solid base (see picture 6).

This was the type of hibachi wascommonly used in Japanese inns toprovideheat for tea andto warmindividual rooms. The stylized elephant head handles with their oustretched trunks formed side handleswhich allowed it to be carried while hot.

This hibachi has been well used yet well loved, and with the exception toa few minorscuffsand dings, as well as a deep bronzepatinait remains in very fine condition. It measures9 3/4" high by 9 3/4" wide (25 x25 cm) and is a niceheavy bronze weighing in atabout six pounds.
