Always nce to have cryptic messages on things. In this 'case', the dates do not seem to match, but it's the contents that matter!

What is written on the fantastic Noshi Maedate, John?

Piers,

 

Here's what's written on the back. It's strange because the perfect, mirror-like finish on the back makes it seem like the maedate is modern, but the excellent patina and detail evident on the front is definitely Edo. Another thing - the maedate is larger and heavier than most such maedate which are usually made of a very light, balsa-type wood. I wonder if this was once some kind of plaque in a Buddhist shrine. Anyone have any ideas?

Catching up a bit this morning with coffee and saw this thread, nice stuff.  I enjoy and appreciate lacquer work, but have very little of it and what I have are small pieces.  I prefer the tansu and/or wooden boxes, especially those adorned with metal banding and latches.  Here are a couple of mine:

I think I want to live in Ed's house.

I'm ready to give up "Beach Paradise" minimalist living, and have tansu envy.

Curran,

Your envy makes me think of one of Westside Story songs and I shall say : and what to keep in.

In the song the girl wants a washing machine and the girls chorus answers : and what do you have to keep clean :)
