Wabi antique Japanese iron pothook for tea ceremony Edo period  (Dealer: Ishii Collection) – Smaller type of Japanese iron pothook (jizai-kagi) made originally for the use of tea ceremony, the Late Edo period. Consciously made as a ‘wabi-sabi’ tea utensil, as rusty iron plates jointed by bronze and iron clamps to make it a rough pipe of refined shabby taste, connected by ‘carved-out screw’ at center as primitive ‘Japanized’ method (not cut by tap) arranged by the introduction of firearms from the West, but without knowledge of screw. approx. L 138 cm (54.33in), W 8 cm (3.14in), D 2.3 cm (0.90in)
