Q169. Papered Mino Fuchi Kashira
Q169. Fuchi kashira in shakudo and gold. The inside dimensions of the fuchi are 1.8 x 3.5 x .8 cm tall. The top and bottom plates of the fuchi are silver. This comes with a Tokubetsu Kicho paper from the NBTHK in Tokyo, dated 1977 and giving it to Mino (a province and also a very prolific group of fittings smiths). The cross pieces at the bottom of the kashira are bent downward from handle wrap but not broken; all else is fine. In a fitted box with pillow. $345.
