Japanese Showa era Shrine Bell "Mokugyo" with matching stick

Japanese Showa era Buddhist Lacquered Bell “Mokugyo”. Estimated age late 1960s.

This is a bell that reeks with character and use. It has the rugged look of a working bell put to good use in one of the many shrines in Kyoto. There is lacquerwork missing in some spots on both sides due to wear and tear from usage usually many times each day. The Bell comes with a matching stick which is not shown in the images.

Dimensions 20cm (8in) height : 18.5cm (7.5in) wide: 15cm(6in) depth
