Namban Kozuka


A kozuka Namban in theme if not style.   The barefoot man clearly not in Japanese dress, with a broad flat nose, carrying a monkey.  The shakudo plate has a low gold content, which accounts for the thin brownish patina.  This is an interesting and collectable piece for its subject matter, or good for mounting.    The glare at the bottom of the bottom of the kozuka is the reflection of the camera flash.   $150.
