Goto Kenjo Kozuka (NBTHK Hozon)

Recommended Posts

This is a wonderful shakudo kozuka depicting waves and a ladle [hatō hishaku no zu kozuka (波濤柄杓図小柄)]. The condition is excellent.

 

The NBTHK attributes the kozuka to Den Kenjō (伝顕乗). Kenjo was the 7th of the Gotō main line generation (1586-1663).

 

Price: $2500 USD + the cost of insured shipping and PayPal. Reasonable offers considered!

 

If I sell the kozuka here I will donate some proceeds to the board, with pleasure!

 

Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Thanks for looking!

Just out of interest I'll add this is probably a ladle used in the Tea ceremony / Chanoyu to transfer water to and from the kettle.

I don’t really collect fittings as I’m deep enough in with blades, but damn this is an outstanding piece!

Doesn't ”Den" mean made by someone at around the time of that master and likely a student rather than by that master? Or am I miles away from the truth?

If i were in a better financial (not making water), position then it would be items like this, chanoyu or tea ceremony related items that would float my boat👺👍
