Title: Japanese Pottery Copper Bottle by Hasegawa Harusada
An antique bottle made from copper. Houou (鳳凰) and Kame (霊亀, turtle) are carved three-dimensionally. They are sacred beasts that are the member of Shirei (四霊, four holy animals) with Kirin (麒麟) and Ryu (竜, dragon).
Houou looks like a combination of chicken and peacock. It was considered an auspicious sign in ancient China, and it was believed Houou would show up when the brilliant emperor appeared. People appreciate its graceful shape. Houou has believed it stays at the paulownia tree; it might be why this plant is designed at the Houou’s foot. In Japanese, there is a proverb that says turtle lives 10,000 years. As it shows, people considered this animal pattern represents longevity.
This bottle’s design is a combination of two creatures, which are regarded as auspicious signs. It would be an elegant and luxurious interior decorating in your room.
