This four piece set of beautiful fifties/sixties Japanese lacquerware was created by several artisans, all skilled in a particular aspect of design. The Aizu manufactory has long been recognized as one of the highest quality makers of lacquerware.

The large server bowl measures 10 1/2 inches in diameter and stands 4 1/4 inches tall. The three smaller sized bowls are 5 1/4 inches in diameter and are 1 3/4 inches high. Carved from natural wood, perhaps jujube, all of the pieces were lacquered in a 3-step process. A marvelous scene of pagoda, trees and birds, along with a stone treatment with tiny pieces of mother-of-pearl and mica were added to the design. A gold dusting process called makie is used by an artist specially trained in that technique.

The colors on this set are visually stunning as well. A deep burgundy red, combined with the gold dust treatment are used for the scenes which encircle the outside of the large server bowl, and are on the interior bottom of the 3 small bowls.

We do note that the bowls were used as a functioning set on special occasions by its one previous owner, and have light utensil marks on the interior bottom of the bowls. One of the small bowls has a tiny chip in the lacquerware finish. This does show in our pictures. The larger bowl has a few flakes of missing lacquer on the top rim, but this does not detract from the setís over-all fine vintage condition.
