If you want to plant a forest landscape or some other kind of Saikei (living landscapes in miniature) then this container is perfect for you. The tray may also be used for Ishitsuki or rock grown bonsai.
Imported around 30 - 40 years ago into South Africa this used container was most likely produced in a ceramics factory in Seto, Japan but has no maker chop. The craftsmanship is superb; there is no warping in the container despite its shallow depth and also no rocking indicating unevenness.
Although the container has seen some use, there are no chips or cracks.
