Hello, all. Just got an old and beautiful room warming hibachi. Has these kanji carved on the bottom. Can anyone tell me what they mean? Thank you so much.

looks like 壱六○, probably 160

Is that all there is?

It is, thank you for responding. Maybe a capacity measurement, of some sort? Google translation by image came up with "60" and "old university 0", though your typed characters do look like them.

Seems more like a model number to me, or a lot number or something like that. But that's just a guess. Be careful with it, using a charcoal grill in an unventilated area can be fatal: The Hazardous Hibachi
