Japanese display or sutra stand, a refined piece, elevated on shaped scrolls, in colors of persimmon red, light black and dark beige, using an exceptional technique of applying various colors in drips and patches, together with tiny crushed pieces of mother-of-pearl - resulting in a mosaic effect. The piece appears to have been made for an establishment and bears an inscription on the base. Condition is good except for a very small area where lacquer has rubbed off, and a horizontal non-separating fissure on the ends of the short side (see photo). The stand appears to date from the Taisho period (1912-1926). Measurements: H 3", L 19", W 12".
