Japanese Lacquer Hibachi Bucket from the Meiji Period (1868-1912), made in Circa 1880-1912.

The Hibachi “Fire Bowl” is a traditional Japanese heating device. It consists of a round, cylindrical, or a box-shaped, open-topped container, made from or lined with a heatproof material and designed to hold burning charcoal. It can be used as a wine bucket holding Ice and 1-2 bottles of liquor. In the west, the term "hibachi" refers to a small cooking stove heated by charcoal (called shichirin in Japanese) or to an iron hot plate (called teppan in Japanese) used in teppanyaki restaurants.

Maki-e is a distinctive Japanese lacquerware technique developed around 1200 years ago. Maki-e (literally: sprinkled picture) is Japanese lacquer sprinkled with gold or silver powder onto a thick layer of lacquer as a decoration, a complicated and highly refined and time-consuming application.

This Japanese Lacquer collection is a result of the von Buren trips to Japan and its various antique fairs, where this entire lot was collected, that ranges from 70 to over 250 years.
