Karaki Chinese Rosewood Tobacco Tray

A simple yet elegant hongmu or sanzhi hardwood tobacco tray. The handle is simply cut out, but the bottom is turned a bit.

In Japan, the tobacco trays were often used with the smoking pipe known as kiseru. As Japan modernized in 1868, the use of the kiseru slowly died out and were replaced with cigarettes. The tradition of using a charcoal and container to remove the burned tobacco was retained in chanoyu or commonly known as tea ceremony.

Age: 19th to 20th century. From an old San Francisco Estate.

Size: Height: 3.5" Length and Width: 6.4".
