Looking for a match for this kashira. For me it looks like unopen chrysanthemum flowers and mino bori style. But I am no expert. Any tip or match would be much appreciated :)

Looking for a kashira or ready to sell. Needs a good clean-up.

Hate to be a downer. But based on the nanako and the millet itself, I highly suspect gimei. But still very nice.

Hmmm...close up pics always make things look worse. That pic looks good. I love those menuki...really do.

Hello Brandon,

I'm considering a Shakudo (maybe iron) fuchi kashira set in nanako pattern, similar to the set you have shown on the right. Maybe something a little fancier with boarders? Or silver inlay grasses or orchids.

Anyway, just throwing it out there in case you have a lead for me to follow, would greatly appreciate it.

Mark,

 

I got those pretty inexpensively off a tosogu Facebook group.  Might be worth checking there.  I tend to like plain fuchi/kashira as they can go with more themes, ha.

Yes, I'm a member on numerous Facebook sites, that being one of them, but to date nothing has come up. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Thanks!

Mark
