An ancient wooden bowl covered in hundreds of layers of lacquer, dribbling down the outside, and built up thick about the rim, hollowed out in the center of the bowl where the actual mixing would have taken place. There is a chip to one edge, revealing the layers of black and crimson lacquer. An incredible piece replete with a vivid sense of the craftsman’s hands. It is slightly elongated with age, 27.5 x 30 x 14.5 cm (10-1/2 x 12 x 5-1/2 inches).
