A 19th century wooden stand perfect for raising a koro off the tatami in an alcove cut from a single stump of wood lacquered and decorated with Takamaki-e raised lacquer designs signed Chokushinsai. All about grape clusters hang among leaves populated with a squirrel. Mostly performed in raised lacquer, there are also bits of mother of pearl inlay. It is roughly 26 cm diameter. There is an old crack which has been re-lacquered and a number of small losses (see close-up photos) but overall, very presentable.
