Description:
A handsome set of seven Japanese bamboo mukozuke that have been lacquered with a dark rust brown lacquer. The seven dishes measure 3 1/4" long by 2" wide by 3/4" high at the ends. The dark lacquer would have been a lovely contrast to the raw fish normally used in the mokuzuke serving. We date these to the mid Taisho to early Showa period, circa 1925-1940. They are in excellent condition.

A Mukozuke is a small dish used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Color in mukozuke is a consideration in relation to the food served. Most commonly, the muko course is one of delicate raw fish, so a garishly colored dish does not always complement, while light, earth or neutral colors do. That is why these dark lacquered dishes would have made such a fine contrast. Now known as the mukozuke course. the food most often served for the mukozuke is raw fish with a tart sauce and a contrasting vegetable, with grated wasabi.
