|A beautiful squash shaped gourd with persimmon colored silk chord and ivory bung enclosed in a fine Kiri-wood viewing box. The burnished red color of the gourd is striated with fine lines, as if it is bursting from the orange bindings. It is 9 cm (4-1/2 inches) tall, roughly the same diameter and in excellent condition.|
