  6. Hello everyone, I am searching for a futokoromono or mitokoronomo for a tanto koshirae. I have no concrete theme in my head, but the work itself should not be too shiny, e.g. not much gold, silver etc. I prefer pieces like Mino, Ko Goto, etc. something around late muromachi /momoyama/early edo Example attached. Price up to 2k dollars, if trades are considered also higher. Thank you, Marco
  7. Open to offers, donation to NMB will be made if sold here!
  8. Hello guys, reviving my own topic it seems... However, I would love to get some additional informations on the metallurgical structures visible in the attached detail shot. While I have some decent chemistry background, I am not sure if this is about different crystal structures of the alloy or also some patina? Especially the "golden" spots would interest me, for the red ones I think of copper clusters in special structure? Of course it would be best if Ford could jump in on these questions! See whole detailed picture here (be patient, it is 80 MP in size) https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1mkLi055M-0xSTtMHBoDNekyeC56NyM6j?usp=sharing Best, Marco
  9. Finally had some time to prepare new pictures, here in high resolution: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1nWIKTC5sq8g-smd3h9OY0e4aslH3mSvV?usp=sharing Additionaly, as these pieces are really great in hand, I grant two day inspection period within Germany and to people I know well from wherever in the world.
  10. Hello everyone, another piece from my tosogu closet for sale. A very good pair of golden dragon Fuchikashira, accompanied by NTHK Papers. The dragons are finely worked out and bear excellent detail, even better in hands. Please keep in mind that one scale is <1mm in size to imagine how detailed the piece is. They come with a box, the kanteisho and a translation of the papers. Feel free to PM me for any question. Price: 950 Euro Higher resolution pictures: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1nWIKTC5sq8g-smd3h9OY0e4aslH3mSvV?usp=sharing Best, Marco

Hello guys, I recently worked on my Tosogu photography and want to share pictures of some pieces in my collection and several I was asked to photograph (and thankfully allowed to partially share here). Please see this link for many more higher resolution images (though not max. resolution due to limited space in Google Drive): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1K0EGb5EDLKof2FLVGmTNOzS7zbWWDkfM?usp=sharing Glad about any feedback to improve the pictures and I hope you like the pieces! Best, Marco
