The pure and elegant simplicity of this set of Haisen is right up my alley, and certainly representative of the Japanese aesthetic surrounding reverence of nature and natural materials. These two deep bowls are turned from the node of a large bamboo, allowing the natural undulating node itself to form the bottom. They are then covered simply in black lacquer, the only decoration a gold circle about the rim. They come in the original age darkened wooden box and are in excellent condition. Each is roughly 13 cm (5 inches) diameter, 9 cm (3-1/2 inches) tall and both are in excellent condition dating from the 19th century.
