A Robuchi hearth frame made from the old timbers (Kozai) of Genkoji Temple and bearing the yaki-in brand from the temple. Kozai tea utensils have long been highly appreciated in Japan, adding a sense of antiquity and Wabi-Sabi to the tea gathering, and crating a bridge between the temple and the tea room. The temple may have several made to give as return gifts to parishioners who have donated to the temples rebuilding. This piece is roughly 17 inches (33 cm) square, 2-3/4 inches (7 cm) tall and in fine condition.
