This vintage bamboo futaoki (lid rest) is shaped for furo use, and is made entirely from Japanese bamboo. Bamboo futaoki for the furo (風炉) season tend to be narrower than those for ro and have the node closer to the top of the piece.

A futaoki (蓋置 - lid rest) is a small stand used to hold the lid of the kama or for resting the hishaku on. They are typically made of bamboo, ceramic, or metal, and come in a vast array of shapes and styles. While metal and ceramic futaoki can be quite ornate and are considered more formal, the common and basic bamboo types are largely undecorated and are the least formal style.

Dimensions:

4.4cm (1.7in) - width
5.4cm (2.1in) - height

Condition: Good

This Japanese item ships from the United States.
