An exquisite lacquer dish with black Tessen (Clematis) flowers over a mottling of pale layers by Ikeuchi Kaho enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Choshitsu Tessen Hana Moyo Kazari-sara. The work is performed by applying layer upon layer of cream-colored lacquer, with a final layer of black, which is then carved through to reveal the lower layers of white, leaving only the one top layer of black as the design. A very labor-intensive process with little room for error. The dish is 30.5 cm (12 inches) diameter and in excellent condition. Ikeuchi Kaho (1903-1967) was an artist in the carved lacquer tradition of Sanuki, and his work is held in the collection of the Takamatsu City Museum.
