Gold gleams on the dragon shaped prow of this boat shaped object in the style of Kyoto’s Ninsei ware. The house on top is meant to be filled with ash and serves as an incense burner. Removed it reveals a glazed compartment in which flowers can be placed, allowing the versatile object to be not only a display on its own, but also to act as a vase and or incense burner. It is 41 x 16 x 25 cm (16-1/2 x 6 x 10 inches) and is in excellent condition, enclosed in an ancient wooden storage box dating from the 19th to opening years of the 20th century.
