Description

Very large antique Japanese wooden bowl.  This bowl dates from the early to mid 20th century and was carved from a single large piece of wood.  The bowl has seen much past use though today is in fairly good shape with only a single large crack with metal repair pins.  Faded, brush-applied Japanese writing is found on the outer surface and kanji characters are carved into the thick lip.  This very large bowl will make an outstanding display item in the home of someone who appreciates authentic Japanese tools.

Size:
Height: 5.1 inches (13.0 centimeters)

  1. I have a wood bowl similar in size and shape to the one you posted on Dec 25, 2007 – but much rougher with no Japanese characters of any kind. Can you give an estimate of its value?
