Edo p. No-Bento Lacquer Picnic Set decorated with Grapes
Precious fruit in silver hangs from golden vines on the sides of this 15 piece No-bento picnic set dating from the mid Edo period. It consists of a carrying case with handle and scrolling vines along the edges, a square bottle with fitted covered dish on top and set of four stacking boxes with lid decorated with grape vines burgeoning with fruit, a set of five small plates decorated with flowers, and a tray with fish. All are marked on bottom with the same stylized mark. There is damage to one corner of the tray. A striking design there are minor losses typical of age and use. 17 x 29.5 x 28 cm. It comes in an ancient red-lacquered kiri-wood storage box with hand forged iron hardware.
