#ACC49 RARE IRON ‘JIZAI’(POT HOOK)

19th Century

 

This large and unusual ‘jizai’ is square sided and can be extended to double its length. There is an iron loop at one end to attach to a ceiling beam. The hook end would hang over a Japanese ‘irori’ (open hearth place).

A finely carved dragon is suspended from a piece of iron in the form of a wave and  appears to be peering at the kettle or pot which would be hanging from the copper inlaid hook.

 

Length of iron shaft: 210cm

Length of dragon: 38cm
