Q205. Fuchi Kashira Signed Soten
Q205. Fuchi kashira, shakudo nanako and gold. The inside dimensions of the fuchi are 1.9 x 3.4 x 1 cm tall. A Samurai on horseback rides through water towards shore on the fuchi; 2 Samurai sit together on the kashira: some piece of Japanese folklore, no doubt. The signature is Hikone Ju Soten Sei, This is very elaborate work quite well done (incredibly tiny nanako) and in pristine condition: a lot to like. There are shitodome in the kashira. $250.
