Antique Japanese Mingei Folk Art Jizai Kagi Hearth Hook
A beatiful Antique Japanese folk art Jizai Kagi or hearth hook dating to the late 19th C. Constructed of solid hardwood (most likely keyaki / zelkova ). This hook was suspended with a rope over an open hearth. A long adjustable pole was then suspended below the hook to hold the kettle for boiling water or cooking. This particular example isin the Daikoku style because of the similarity to his hat style and originated from Ishikawa prefecture. The hook is very heavy and shows signs of exposure to the rising heat, particularly around the square lugs. A highly collectible example of Japanese folk art. Dimensions: 9" tall x 8 1/4" wide x 3 1/4" thick.
