Japanese wood & lacquer "Yokogi," or Carp fish, "Koi" with contemporary hook & rope. This was originally used to hold cast-iron pots over a wood burning fire to cook food inside a home! Well carved, nice form, with the tail fin nicely curved as if the carp is swimming. Circa: 1910-1920. Length is 19 inches or 49 cms. width is 4.75 inches or 12 cms. Condition is good.
