Subject:Japanese YOKAI (妖怪) In Circular Iron Tray, Unsigned
Posted By: Warren L. Sun, Apr 17, 2022 IP:

~6⅞" diameter, ~1¼" high, weight ~29 ounces.

21 raised dots around the rim (is the number significant?).
Note also three 'comma' symbols surrounding (behind) the image.
Who is the Demon with claws for hands & feet?
What are the objects in his hands?
Is the tray for ceremonial use?
Can you give an approximate age for the tray?
Any of your help with this will be most gratefully acknowledged!

Thank you...Warren | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
