Antique Japanese Meiji Period Jizaikagi Hearth Hook
Beautiful undulating keyaki (zelkova) wood hearth hook to stabalize the pot over the irori or floor hearth in the old style japanese minka farmhouses. Meiji Period C.1900. Rope wear in the crook of the hook is the tell tale sign of age. Fake, modern ones are different and don`t have that wear. Minor cracks that have been filled in but covered in rich patina and smoke from old hearth fires. H:23" x W:18".
