Description

This interesting item is an old fashioned Japanese fish trap.  Fish can enter the small opening but then are unable to easily exit. There may have once been a stopper at the opposite end though this is missing.  The trap is hand-made from woven bamboo strips and dates from the mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989).

Size:
Length: 8.7 inches (22.5 centimeters)
Diameter 3.9 inches (10.0 centimeters)
Weight: 2.9 ounces (84 grams)
