This round turned wooden dish is lacquered a rich red on the face and black on the back, and set on a turned wood pedestal that is lacquered black on the exterior and interior. This was an item made for frequent use, perhaps for serving food, or also for displaying festival paraphernalia on certain occasions. There is wear from use – losses to the red lacquer, as well as some abrasions to the surface. The top is slightly out of round from typical shrinkage. Acquired in Kyoto around 1973.

Diameter: 12 ½ in., Height: 3 5/8 in.
