SOLD IN12 Antique Japanese Fish Dryer

Straw encased in webbed hemp, cylindrical with hemp rope hanger. Small fishes are skewered and then put in between the webbed section to hang and dry. In itself these driers are an art form and to a creative mind, other things can be hanged, not just fish. They are pristine, most likely acquired before they were put to use. From Japanese coastal towns, early 20th century. Measures 30 ½" long x 6” diameter.
