A few decades ago, when the Japanese emperor and empress find one of her works, they decided to purchase.

Most of the items I sell are vintage; they are second hand, old, sometimes very old.
I try to describe and photograph my items honestly, however, if the pristine condition is very important to you, I feel you should be buying from a regular shop, where you can inspect the items personally.
PLEASE NOTE: All my items are sold "as is", with no warranty implied, and that the photos form part of the description, which should be read carefully.
