A very old set of shakudo Ko-Kinko menuki from the Momoyama period circa 1575. The theme of this menuki is Daikokuten. He is one of the seven gods of good fortune. Daikokuten is the god of wealth. He is cleverly represented here by his rice bales, mallet (Uchide-no-Kozuchi) and bag. The ropes of the rice bales are finished in gold. Details of the bag and mallet are done in silver iroe with gold rope on the bag. This pair features male and female posts which were used in pre-Edo times. Accompanied by an old paulownia storage box with a pillow. A great opportunity to aquire a Ko-Kinko menuki in good condition.
