But Gordon Robson did anyhow, at yesterday's NTHK Meeting: on Ko-Mino fittings from his personal collection, so all was good . Some very good explanations on workmanship, motifs (they are not all flowers and insects), and historical development. One of my favorites was a "solid" silver fuchigashira, you don't see that too often.

Thank you Guido
The images reminded me of a presentation givwn by Gordon at the end of the first day of the last UK shinsa the NTHK did in the UK. It was a fascinating subject and beautifully illustrated by the examples from Gordon's collection.
I do envy those of our colleagues living in or close to Japan having access to meetings and such a wealth of material to study and enjoy.

Gordon stoked my interest in Ko Mino work through one of his lectures many years ago. I love the large Fuchi Kashira in the left picture above. It's amazing.

I enjoy the rare "solid" silver Ko-Mino silver works too.
Don't see them often, and I hadn't seen that one in Prof. Robson's collection before.
