Cranes and pine trees are a popular pairing in Japanese symbolism. From ancient times, cranes in Japan were said to live for a thousand years, serving as potent symbols of youthfulness and long life in both literature and art. Pine trees also signify longevity.
Constructed with a top surface ending in slightly everted edges, raised by a frame with scalloped cut outs at each side, creating a lovely open display area. Underneath a pair of sliding doors fitted with flower-shaped metal thumb grips. They open to an open storage area. Raised by four bracket-feet.
In a very good condition with some minor traces of age and use. Please look at the photos of some superficial traces on the surface area and two small lacquer chips at the back corners. For a clear condition reference, please look at the pictures as well.
