The hibachi is a traditional Japanese heating device (circa 1890 - 1910). It consists of an open-topped container made from or lined with a heatproof material and designed to hold burning charcoal. A mesh grill was often placed on top of the charcoal container area for the heating or cooking of various foods, or just for warming tea, etc. However, they were most often used for warming small Japanese homes. Also, traditional hibachis were originally used mainly by the samurai classes and aristocrats but gradually spread among the general population. This particular hibachi was discovered in Tokyo and has a very unusual and beautiful burled wood finish. There are five small storage drawers and a tea serving board which lies next to the bronze charcoal container. To add interest to this piece, it is possible to have a glass top made and fitted over the charcoal basin where decorative objects can sit. There are two cracks in the wood by one of the handles that should be noted but overall in good vintage condition commensurate with its age.
