Wonderful Amida Buddha made of thick bronze signed on the back with the name: Fukui. We conservatively date it late 1800`s but it could be much older. Roughly cast but with fantastic simple beauty and depth. The more you look and be with this buddha, the more it`s essence of compassion and awareness permeates. Very mingei folk art and wabi -sabi. The hands in the zenjo-in mudra actually are detached. Very heavy but hollow inside so the amount of bronze is remarkable. Ask for shipping quote. H: 24" x W: 21".

Fabulous pair of mother-of--pearl inlay red lacquered Late Meiji Period C.1910 peddler sweets boxes. Rope would have gone through the bases and the peddler would have carried the two boxes on a pole from village to village or through towns. Inside would have been stacking boxes to hold the sweets, usually omanjyu red bean paste sweets. Block Kanji design on sides and characters describing the shop the sweets were made from. Later it seems the the sweets shop changed hands in the Taisho Period and a paper was added with a more modern telephone #. On the inside base is written name Echigo so we know it was from that region. Slight lacquer wear but very good condition. Spectacular end tables. Ask for shipping quote from California warehouse.
