1930s Japanese bronze tea ceremony HIBASHI Myochin
1930s Japanese bronze tea ceremony hibashi (chopsticks for handling charcoal in hibachi brazier) in original signed box. Finely made of bronze with high copper contents, elegant and practical shape with thinner and thicker areas for convenience of holding, embossed areas at the working end for better handling of charcoals. Superb patina, beautiful wear, pleasantly heavy. Each chopstick is marked HYAKUO MUNEYUKI SAKU (made by Hyakuo Munechika), and I believe the maker to be a member of Myochin family of metalworkers, which have been making armor and metal objects for 51 generations. Comes in original wooden box marked and sealed on the outside and inside the cover, and old wrapping cloth. Hibashi length 9 5/8 inches
