Japan – Hunting Trip Nov 2019

I’ve just returned from my last buying trip of 2019. Earlier this year I visited a number of auctions to acquire tansu. This trip my focus was on smaller items such as bronzes, ironware sword and gun chests.

I was able to procure some really nice items including a couple of religious artefacts one of which dating back to the Muromachi period.

I have not acquired enough volume yet to completely fill the container so I will be back in the new year after the snow to source the remainder.

Here is a small preview of what’s on route for 2020
