T272. Ko Mino Menuki, Shakudo with a touch of gold
T272. Menuki attributed to Ko Mino (early Mino, 16th century). Shakudo, pierced and with a touch of gold. 51 and 54 mm long, in a fitted box that needs a pillow. I have been told that early Mino work arose when Goto smiths moved east and worked with Tachikanagushi smiths, or at least that is current theory. This is a very nice set in wonderful condition. $550.
