A sage with his deer companion wanders the wilderness wrapping around this bamboo incense container dating from the ealy 20th century (late Meiji to Taisho period). It is 33.5 cm long (13-1/2 inches) long and in excellent condition, a superb example of the genre. This would have been used to hold incense sticks.
