K164. Shakudo Nanako Fuchi Kashira, Gold Inlay
K164. Shakudo with fine nanako finish fuchi kashira. The inside dimensions of the fuchi are 1.8 x 3.3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.5 cm. Inside the kashira is 1.4 x 2.8 cm. The gold flowers look like cherry blossoms but I wouldn’t expect them on long stems; is there a botanist in the house? The quality of the shakudo is quite good; the color is a deeper black than shows in my feeble pictures. Condition is excellent; I can’t find a scratch or ding anywhere. $295.
