GATANKO (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Primitive Japanese local ‘Jizaikagi’ hanging wooden pothook from Yamagata Prefecture in Tohoku region, commonly called ‘Gatanko’. Edo-Meiji period, 19th century.
Unusually its length is adjustable by the hook hanging on its seven rungs for this piece, as usually other most pieces are adjustable by leverage on the other hand. Also, unusually its hanging string is made of the bark of Japanese linden. In aesthetically soot-covered condition as is as seen. Because of such its unhandy and breakable factor, this piece must be a very scarce folkcraft piece remained until today.

Body: approx. L 76cm (29.92in), Total with string: approx. L 136cm (53.54in)
