And p.2, which goes under the code name "machibori".
 
1. Horses tsuba
Mumei
Very nice tsuba with a herd of 10 horses
Size: 77 x 70 x 5 mm
Price: USD 750

2. Descending eagle and two monkeys hiding in the hollow of a tree fuchi-kashira
This is a superb work by Hideharu Hidefusa, who worked in Omori school style. There is a chance this guy was also related somehow to Hayata Mitsufusa (H 05150.0) who also used the name Hidefusa and was a student of Omori Terumitsu (H 09603.0). Finest nanako, wonderful inlay work, picture comes to life. A true masterpiece.
Signed: Hidefusa Kao (H 01012.0)
Price: USD 1500

3. Hotei kozuka
Signed: Noriyuki, Hamano Noriyuki (H 07454.0, H 07455.0)
What can I say; this is a Hamano masterpiece. Just look at the details. I will be silent.
Price: USD 1000

4. Tigers kozuka
Signed: Yanagawa Naomasa (H 06690.0)
Nice kozuka, fine katakiribori and kebori, tigers on both sides.
Price: USD 750

5. Omori waves kozuka
Mumei Omori
Mmm, waves, my weakness. Deeply undercut waves, fine sea spray inlay. Mix of alloys: shibuichi (omote) and shakudo (ura).
Price: USD 950

And the most serious of us are welcome to discuss this set of Omori school fittings :)

"And the most serious of us are welcome to discuss this set of Omori school fittings"

 

​Having just completed an utsushimono set of menuki based on a set sold not long ago by Darcy, I have to question these menuki as being Omori school.  If you look in Markus Sesko's book on Kano Natsuo's notebooks, you will find this design 3 times.  I suppose it's possible he was copying Omori originals, but the wave style is much more modern IMHO.

Right, the design is not old.
I had the same thought when we discussed this set here

And... sold.

Just one beautiful waves kozuka left alone.

Oh, and the waves set of course, almost forgot.

Together they could produce a very strong tsunami  :)

I'm also interested in the Omari fittings.  I think a price should be included.

I have just recieved some pieces from Alex. I am absolutely delighted with them. His descriptions were very accurate and they are better in hand than the images suggest. A very straightforward and easy transaction

thank you Alex

You are very welcome, Paul. It was my absolute pleasure.
It’s always the same with fine tosogu, pictures don’t do it justice. I will be releasing 20 items from my collection, if I won’t be able to upload video here, follow me on FB.
Thanks!

From these only the Omori set is still pleasing my eye  :)

Maybe some solid offers?

Omori style set is now $4500, shipped by world class courier of your choice, flexible payment options.
Please take it away from me! I don’t deserve this beauty :)
