Edo Period, Japanese, lacquer, rice bowl and lid depicting gorgeous motifs set among Japanese fans, and crafted upon a brown lacquered surface with raised, gold lacquer paint. The motifs feature images ranging from Mt. Fuji, flying and perched birds, mountain ranges, water features, and delicate pine and cherry blossom trees- all adorned with gold flecks within the lacquer. Pewter rims appear on the lip of the bowl, as well as that of the lid. Additionally, a pewter band appears on the lid topper and serves as a foot when the lid is inverted. The internal surfaces of the lid feature a gorgeous bird motif rendered in raised, gold lacquer paint. Please note, this rice bowl shows signs commensurate with age and use including slight warping and dings to the pewter bands, minor chips, dulling of the internal lid surface (due to steam), and cracks due to natural shrinkage of materials. Additionally, restoration has occurred including touch ups.
