Edo Period Menuki

Dimensions: 38 mm x 8 mm x 3 mm
37 mm x 8 mm x 3 mm

This is a late Edo period shibuichi menuki set in the theme of feathers. These may be representative of tea ceremony feather whisks. These were not designed with posts. Which is interesting to see and dates them to the late Edo period. These have a simple charm and would look attractive on a tanto.
