A Fantastic Set Of Tosogu By Togyokusai Kiyotsugu
A Fantastic Set Of Tosogu By Togyokusai Kiyotsugu. The theme is monkeys eating persimmons and is done in silver copper, gold and skaudo. The detail and realism is unbelievable. Kiyotsugu was a top fittings maker in the Meiji period. There is some damage to the baby monkeys face on the kashira and the long arm of the monkey is bent. These can be seen in the photos. They can be repaired by a trained craftsman that I know. A wonderful set of Tosogu!
