|Origin:||Naraigawa-ishi. Nagano prefecture, Japan.|
|Size:||6 3/4 x 4 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches, 17 x 11 x 9 cm (w x h x d)|
|Storage Box:||Made from wood, and used to store and protect the stone when not on display.|
On the outside of the box there is a painting of the stone by a previous owner, who has also written Naraigawa-taki-ishi (Narai river waterfall stone).
The '78 refers to 1978, which we must assume is the year the stone became a suiseki.
||Carved in Japan from hardwood. Good workmanship, it suits and fits this stone very well.|
The daiza maker has signed the underside (unread)
||A very good quality suiseki in the form of a near view mountain with a waterfall cascading down the front -
this style lends itself very well to a suiban/doban display.|
It appears the bottom of the stone has been flattened in places to facilitate fitting a daiza.
||SOLD, with thanks.
