Title: Antique Sword Stand Vertical (Kakedai-03)
Antique sword-stand for Samurai sword, Tachi (太刀). The wood has a glossy coating with black lacquer. People, landscapes, and plants are designed with Raden (螺鈿, mother-of-pearl work) technique. Raden is a kind of decorative style that is often used for traditional craftworks. It uses the pearl part of seashells and put it into the engraved surface of lacquer or wood. Thanks to its iridescent luster, it gives a luxurious look to works. The shells are cut into various shapes and combined to create completely different designs from the same material; this is one of the charms of Raden work. Please enjoy this item as the sword-stand or an interior decoration in your room.
