I bought this at a shrine sale in Japan about 17 years ago. I had to carry this thing through Tokyo in my backpack for the afternoon to get it home. It weighs 15-20 pounds but it was well worth it. This is my favorite piece that I own. It is cast iron measuring 12 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 5". The ball is a separate piece.There are no identifying markers on it. Does anyone know how can I tell how old it may be?Thanks.
I just found this website and I think it is absolutely awesome. I see so many beautiful pieces that people post and everyone here seems to be very helpful when they can. I will be visiting quiet often!!
