An Edo period lacquered Bashaku Water Scoop covered in mother of pearl flakes decorated with the Kikusui-mon Crest in gold, vermilion lacquer within. It is 59.5 cm (roughly 2 feet) long and in overall fine condition with minor losses typical of age and use. The name Bashaku literally means horse scoop, and indicates these were used for watering horses on the road.
