The Menuki Orphanage


Recommended Posts

Menuki missing their partners.

The equine set have minor rubbing to Shakudo on horses shoulder and general use marks. Heavy gold overlay. Could probably go with a whip or saddle or maybe a single horse. Quite a bit should pair with this one. £50


The floral menuki is large and of reasonable or mediocre quality.£35

Happy to buy the orphans that may compliment these as well.

Thank you for looking Adam

Dear Jesse, older high level menuki often have rounded posts - one solid and one hollow (see photos below).  Another sign of age and quality is Uttori (the use of thick gold foil instead of gold wash - see photo below from the backside of the tail of the Dragon from my menuki posted above) - you can tell that it is gold foil folding over the edge instead of being brushed on like paint.
