Good condition, see description

Antique Japanese bronze/iron temple bell, or "bonsho", with a handle of dragon's heads named a ryuzu,

beautiful in its simplicity.

You mainly find these in Japanese temples, they are often enormous, these are called Tsurigaan which are struck from the outside

by a monk with a mallet or a beam suspended from a rope.

This is a magnificent and fine bell from a temple in Nagoya.

Height is 20 cm, diameter 11.5 cm.
Extremely rare in this condition.

Will be packaged and shipped with great care.

  • Lovely dolls in very good condition. However, in the picture each doll has a broom but in the shipment I got there was only one broom. This is a disappointment: somehow in the packing a broom got lost
