I have a kashira that's lost its fuchi. It is shabuichi and Shakudo with silver and gold.

Identical to the set in the metropolitan museum by Marukawa Hiroyoshi (worked around early 1800's died 1841 or 1842) who worked out of Mito.

I am looking for its fuchi or as close as possible or will offer it up to make up your own set.

Thank you Adam

A few odd bits and pieces for matching up or trading.

First three

1.A kashira on polished chocolate brown shibuichi on which is displayed a group of autumn flowers and leaves in a delicate, low relief incrustsion of shibuichi, Shakudo, silver and several shades of gold.

For some reason the shitodome ana have been carefully sealed.

 

2.A fuchi: on a chocolate brown polished shibuichi is depicted in a delicate low relief, a Dragon amidst styalised waves. It has golden eyes and a golden fang. Inscribed on the tenjō MASACHIKA. Haynes lists 11 artists using these kanji.

This one is Bushu Masachika (see Edward wrangham collection tsuba) Bonhams.

 

3.A polished copper kashira in low relief incrustation are gold hon-zogan diagonals with scattered sakura blossoms, some of which are gold and some Shakudo with a gold centre 19th Century Mito work.

 

If you have a match please PM me and we can decide which way to go. Regards Adam

Another orphan looking for either a good quality plain nanako kashira or something with just a little gold on a nanako ground sorry the photos wash out the richness of this item.

 

This is a 19th Century fuchi with slightly raised edges and a good rich dark nanako background and gold fan decorations in finer nanako cartouches.Fairly Good quality work probably Gotō school but unsigned.

Regards

On January 6, 2017 I posted here a few orphan fuchi. I sold most of them since I didn't see any point in collecting broken sets. But kept only one example, a signed Furukawa Jochin fuchi with a priest and kids. Only one single piece in my whole collection. Just didn't want to part with it since I very much like the motobori techniques. And finally a couple of months ago while running my daily search I found a kashira, which in my opinion matches the fuchi almost perfectly except maybe the inlay work but in motif for sure. So, meet the new happy couple)
