JAPANESE SUISEKI
YOJURO - ISHI


Origin: Yojuro-ishi. Japan.
Size: 22 x 10 x 4.5 cm (w x d x h)
Daiza: Carved in Japan from rosewood, beautiful craftsmanship, its elegant design suits the stone well. The daiza is a newer addition to this older stone, which almost certainly would have been displayed in a suiban during its earlier life as a suiseki.
Through age the daiza has shrunk slightly in its front to back dimension causing the stone not to fully sit in it at the back.
Kiri Box: Used to store and protect the stone when not on display. Made from Paulownia wood and stained dark brown - this box is a newer addition to the stone, possibly from around the time I acquired it.
Comments: This fine quality Yojuro is quite rare and unusual in the fact that the flat landscape part of the stone is of a dark mineral and not white, as is the usual case.
I acquired this suiseki in early 2004 and it has been in my personal collection since then.
Price: SOLD, with thanks.
