Designed to hold glowing embers, hibachi vessels were used as a source of heat or for cooking in Japanese homes. Placed under a low wood kotatsu table with an open slat top, the hibachi functioned as a grill and created a cozy gathering place for the family. This 19th-century hibachi is decorated with intricate blue-and-white patterns surrounding a trail of double gourds, symbols of health, longevity, and good luck. Within several gourds is a traditional landscape painting depicting a small cottage, connecting the auspicious symbol to the home. Grand in scale and heft, this captivating hibachi makes an ideal jardinière.
