Details

  • Catalogue text

    Mokkō; edge hammered up; on each face an iron wire bent in mokkō form is held down near the edge by numerous little arches alternately of brass and iron wire, their ends roghly clinched into the holes cut for them; some coarse engraving to the right (or left) of the seppadai looks like parts of large plum-blossoms.
