A very beautifully rendered Japanese treasure ship with intricate details that are just amazing, this large cast iron antique is lacquered with the 'old red' traditional lacquer that can only be found on your older Japanese antiques. Its function is rare as it doubles up as a censer, fine slit holes are found in the front and backsides of the sail, allowing a fine mist of smoke to create an allusion that the ship is sailing through a fog. This ship measures 14" high x 11" long x 6" wide and weighs a whopping 9lbs. The sail and railing, along with the base bottom are all hand applied. Circa 1915
