Nice one! Wih urushi on the outside of the utaguchi. What else do you know about it? When is it from? Who owned it?
Hi Kiku! This one was probably made around the 1920 - 30's. It came from the family of a Hogaku player who had passed away so I'll respect his privacy. It's a 1.9, which I was told is the desired length for Seien players. It's very nice.
The bottom kanji looks like Shin but I can't make out the top one. Anyone know this maker? _________________
