This exceptionally well carved and elegant Kadai, display stand, measures 21 inches by 17 1/2 inches and is 3 inches high. Carved from a single piece of wood in the form of a lotus leaf resting on lotus roots, stems and lotus pods. The naturalistic carving, elegant lines and artistic balance of this stand could only have been achieved by a master carver. Unsigned. Late Meiji, early Taisho Period, circa 1890-1920.
