Large Japanese Porcelain Hibachi

An elaborate design of a fan, a banner, a saki keg, etc., floating in swirling seaweed and Buddhist symbols covers the sides of this dramatic hibachi, or Japanese brazier. The top bears an equally elaborate design of ho-o birds and flowering kiri (paulonia) branches, symbols of the female principle and the Empress. Here and there the glaze is interrupted to reveal motifs with molded detailing that have taken on the iron-oxide toning of the porcelain body, lending a remarkable depth to the overall effect. The hibachi, in perfect condition, is late Nineteenth or earl Twentieth Century and is approximately 18 inches in diameter and 12 inches high.
