Subject:Tiny wooden Shinto bowl from Japan...Does anyone know anything about it?
Posted By: JayC Tue, Feb 27, 2018 IP:

I recently found this tiny bowl, (about 2" across the rim), and can't figure out what it was used for. I bought it because of the Torii carved prominently in the bottom (looks like the floating gate at Miyajima). Was it used for some kind of offering or as a tourist item? Any help would be appreciated! | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
