F206. Mumei Shakudo Kotsuka with Paper to Goto Jujo
F206. Kotsuka in shakudo: 1.3 x 9.3 cm. All shakudo here: the chicken and fence sit on an incredibly fine nanako ground. Condition is excellent. This comes in a fitted box and with a Hozon paper from the NBTHK, dated 2010 and giving the work to Goto Jujo (Mitsumasa). A former owner has written neatly in small English on the box lid, “Goto Jujo, Mitsumasa 12th Generation 1695 -1742.” Was $1,275; now $1,050.
