Black mingei wooden candlestick

Black mingei wooden candlestick

Black-fumigated wood carving candlestick in primitively simple form in quite an exquisitely bold one-hand size matured by the everyday life of local people in Yamagata area in Tohoku region as a very unique type, 19th – early 20th century. Somehow phallic as an essential Japanese mingei folk art piece. approx. H 15cm (5.90in)
