Miniature incense dish - cute snow monkey
A small-sized handmade ceramic dish to put an incense cone. It is shaped like a snow monkey - an animal famous for enjoying baths in Japanese natural hot springs. This one is holding a peach, which may be a reference to the story of Momotarō, a boy found in a giant peach, who befriended (among others) a talking monkey.
It could be used as a box to keep your favorite ring or a lucky coin.
It is made of a varnished air clay. There is a stamp of the maker on the bottom.
