Lot Details
A Goto School shakudo-nanako kozuka,
decorated with sea-shells in shakudo, gilt and silver takabori, 17th Century

Footnotes

  • Cf. Victoria and Albert Museum M.110-1910 for a similar example, also decorated with shells in gold, silver and shakudo, dated by the V&A to 'about 1500-1600'. However, the late William H. Tilley [1921-1993] attributed this group of kozuka to the 17th Century [compare Christie's 22/2/1983, lot 159].
