Japanese Myochin Hibachi Furin Wind Chime 51st Myochin
Vintage Japanese Myochin Hibachi Chopsticks , made of iron to pick up burning charcoal. They have been turned into Furin, a wind bell/chime , from mid. to late 1900s. They are made by Muneyuki Myochi, ( 1917 - ) who is the 51st Myochin . The Myochin family has been making some of the best armor historically and have lived in Himeji for many generations. The Myochin family originally made armor, but eventually as the samurai's time ended ,it was no longer needed and so they started to make hibashi ,chopsticks for brazier and others.They ring like a bell cricket when they touch the center piece as the wind passes through them . It comes in an original wooden box and includes a paper which contains information about this piece. Slight wear on the paper and box, but this wind bell/chime is in perfect condition. 13 " High without paper tag on the bottom x 2.375 " Wide on top crossed piece ( 33 cm H x 6 cm W )
