Inquire for Price

Beautiful wooden jizaigake, or pothook hanger. This rather straight type is called Ebisu, after the shape of Ebisuís hat. These hangers were suspended with a rope from a heavy beam, over the open hearth. From the hanger an adjustable hook was hung that held the kettle. Black lacquered zelkova wood. 19th century. 12 ĺ x 10 ĺ x 8 Ĺ inches. Good piece of mingei. Beautiful patina, some age cracks and slight traces of usage. Very good condition. Metal support.
It is very unusual for jizaigake to be lacquered. A similar piece can be found in the Montgomery collection.
