Gold lacquer two-tiered stand
An extraordinary gold lacquer two-tiered stand, its ground abundantly sprinkled with clusters of nashiji, its two full aprons designed ensuite, resting upon cabriole legs on the lower tier. Upon its top surface, an extravagant depiction of kiku in two tones of gold lacquer rest against a fence, while the apron and lower tier is splashed with groves of woodsy flowers. This lovely stand, its depictions of honored natural subjects richly lacquered in hiramakie is a thing-of-beauty unto itself or it can serve as a resplendent pedestal to hold a favored artwork. Height, 10.25"; length, 14.5". Meiji Period.
