Vintage lacquered table (zataku)

Price:  900,00

Fantastic vintage table (zataku) from the 1960-sixties; black lacquered with extensive gold lacquer decoration of alternating Chrysanthemum (Kiku) and Peony (Botan) flowers. Kiku flowers symbolizing “nobility”, “trust me” and “purity”. In nice original condition with some light signs of age and use. Botan flowers referring to good fortune, nobility, bravery and honor. The technique used is so-called chinkin lacquer-ware, which means submerged gold. A blade is used to cut lines or dots into a lacquered surface. Gold leaf or fine gold powder is then inlaid in the grooves, creating a fine and delicate design. Shōwa period (1926-1989).
