This is a vintage branding iron called a "yakiin". These were/are used on wood, you want to brand. Please see the last picture to see an example of how it can be used.

I think they would look fabulous if used in pottery as a stamp. Also...I think they could be used with ink but as it is metal, the image wouldn't be as smooth and clear as a rubber stamp -please keep that in mind if that is how you want to use it.

This is "ni" in Hiragana (Hiragana is part of the Japanese writing system) which can mean "two".

They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at least 30 years old.

This is made of iron. Please look at the pictures carefully

It measures 17.5m long x 2 cm (the stamp) wide.
