Beautiful low table (zataku), overall lacquered in wakasa nuri technique. Randomly incrusted with mother of pearl (raden) flakes. This table has not been cleaned or waxed – so completely “as found” Japan, in very nice original condition. Early Showa-period.
Wakasa lacquerware (called Wakasa-nuri in Japanese) is produced in the area around the city of Obama, Fukui prefecture. It is said to have originated in the early Edo period (1603-1868) when a craftsman serving the Obama domain (now the city of Obama), which controlled the region near Wakasa Bay, created a design depicting the beautiful depths of the sea (source: Kogei Japan).
