Japanese Wooden Tray Commemorating Painter Hashimoto Kansetsu 1950s.

Tray 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 ins. (21.6 x 21.6 cms) This beautifully made tray in Kiri (paulownia) wood is decorated with three of Kansetsu's seals. Hashimoto Kansetsu (1883-1945) was a prominent Kyoto painter whose house in Kyoto is now a museum dedicated to his work. The tray was made and signed by Shisho, about whom we have no information. The associated box (tomibako) is inscribed on the outside Kiri Shiho Bon (paulownia square cake tray) and on the inside of the lid the maker's name and seal. It is in fine unused condition. The lid of the box is very slightly warped.
