Japanese incense stick holders
This is an unusual pair of Japanese wooden lacquered incense stick holders from the early 20th century. They are delicately decorated with hand-painted blossoms and golden birds on black lacquered wood.
The original brilliance of the reds and golds on the blossoms is gently faded, although the birds retain their vibrancy. There are small signs of wear on the base which are barely visible when the holders are standing.
Both have an original sticker on the base.
