Trying to help my neighbor identify and possibly value this rod. It is a one-piece bamboo, quite thick and heavy. I can just make out "Made in Occupied Japan" on the manufacturer's label, which would indicate 1946-1952. The mfg. seems to be H_RA__, Inc. which might be Harada.
Any help would be appreciated. The rod belonged to her late husband and it would be nice if there was any value here.
