Primitive Japanese wooden Jizaikagi pothook (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Primitive local hanging wooden pothook of Yamagata, Tohoku region, commonly called “Gatanko”. Edo-Meiji period, 19th century. Also as its unusual primitive structure, adjustable length by hook hanging on its seven rungs, though adjustable by leverage for other pieces usually. So, unhandy and breakable, but a very scarce folkcraft piece remained today. In completed antique condition with no missing part (but with cracks), with expected signs of use as seen. Reduced: approx. 82 cm (32.28in), Expanded: approx. 140 cm (55.11in)
