Black lacquer bowl, sakura & waves
Large black lacquer bowl is decorated with an elegant incised wave motif that is punctuated with falling sakura petals. The classic rimpa design is updated in an almost art-deco style. It may have been part of a set, of which only one remains. However, the size is too large for a soup bowl and would be an elegant display item. Late Edo era.
Condition: Good. There are a couple of tiny chips on the rim and some light scratches on the interior.
Size: 5.91″ x 3.66″ /15 x 9.3cm
