Stunning Japanese 'Icchin Moriage' Octagonal Vase Lamp Stand (10279)
Icchin is the name of the tool used to draw moriage. White or coloured mud clay paint (made with water and clay) is put in the icchin and then squeezed out the beak to create decorative lines, faces and dots, much like the process of decorating a cake.
We believe this is mid-century modern period in age.
In very good condition. Works well (see photo with light on).
Measures 180mm x 180mm x 560mm high. Octagonal vase shape.
