Miniature Torii, shrine gates made of very thin metal, probably iron. The usage is not clear, but it is said they are votive offerings for a shrine, however name of the shrine or age is unknown. They have nice rust and one of them lost one metal. Very thin less than 1mm. 11.5cm x 18.5cm Probably 19th century.
