|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.
||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.
||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.
||SOLD, with thanks.
