"A delicately and ethereal sukashi representation of a table arrangement of a plant, a minature willow tree Bonzai. Seems Kyoto, but probably Kyoto Shoami work. Very rare design and very well done. The rim has a few small iron bones. Some of the willow tree branches are inlaid. A very remarkable work of the best quality. Dates ca. 1600." (Haynes & Long)

NBTHK 'green' paper dated March 4, 1973.
