    I have a few questions about this piece.

    1. What IS it? It's too small to be a cake stand, plus it's shaped like a very shallow bowl. Compote?

    2. What do you call the fine woven (reticulated?) work around the edges?

    3. I'm certain it was only meant for decoration, as the handpainted cherry branch would be worn away by use, but how is this a practical piece of decor? It would be tough to display in a cabinet and hard to protect out on the furniture.

    Its lovely and in perfect condition, but I can't find any "mates" to it online.
    Thanks in advance for any help you have to share!!

      @ apostata, could you elaborate on your ideas? I am not familiar with the terms you used and I'd like to look into them, please? I appreciate your help!
    5. apostata apostata, 5 months ago
      daiza boru is a term for an pedestal combination , in ancient time used together with the compound namely stoneware
      so we got a pedestal , but it won,t solve the problems , is it for compote or for kaisha (kashi)

      actually they told me because i did,not knew it was for kashi

      they explained me nowadays no one cares about the small differences in the deviation of the pedestal , and they use even pomegranates . peaches , and plums dishes etc which actually are kashi dishes

      in the 50 these kinds of bowls were a hype , because the lower classes wanted to blend in ,

      there is a stratification in this stuff the common outsourced stuff is coming from china and the japanese did the '' mounting ''

      and the internal stuff came from noritake and maruto which is slightly better

      but the real stuff is coming ordered special designed or the very posh japanese restaurants ware they got there own mark

      the kaishi got some different connotation, and the reason is by means of sociale stratification and politness and respect ( suffix and prefix principle of the language)

      they extrapolite kashi into okashi which actually got the same meaning as the japanese word oyatsu

      only okashi = dear sir would you be so kind to use some sweets , so the prefix emphasises the social stratification and the respect

      kashi used to be more like saying to a toddler he dude you want some sweets
      at the end it all intertwines nowadays no one gives a s...

      actually there are 3 components

      1dagashi = in common japanese named beggars candy, because it is cheap like winegums etc , and mostly for children

      2wagashi=tradition former posh confections also used after the kaiseki-ry?ri as intermissionfor the rest of the time

      3and the former mentioned okashi

      Thanks very much @apostata . I think I'm having a hard time with the terminology you are familiar with. I'm just not that educated in the subject.

      Anyone who can explain it to me is welcome to add their thoughts.
