Dark Iron glaze covers this grinning bull with a pierced silver farmers hat resting on his back covering the silver rimmed chamber for burning incense. It comes enclosed in a custom made collectors Kiri-wood box titled Ko-Seto Ushi Koro. It is roughly 9 x 5 x 4 inches (22 x 12 x 10 cm) and is in fine condition dating likely from the mid 19th century (Bakumatsu era).
