    Brass IHADA Bookend KOMAGATA w66 x d54 x h110, 1200g




    The brass bookends are heavy in weight so that they can stably hold books.

    The bottom is lined with a felt so that it won't damage the surface on which the bookends are placed.

    The surface of the bookends is IHADA-finished, a crude casting surface. The bookend gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.

  • "Futagami," a brass foundry founded in the city of Takaoka, Toyama Pref., Japan in 1897 launched a brass livingware brand named "FUTAGAMI."

    Brass has long been used in various fields such as metal fittings for architecture, ships, and furniture as it has corrosion resistance property and moderate workability.

    It has a long history as a material for arts and crafts or Buddhist altar equipment as its texture is gentle with an elegant luster.

    Brass products gradually change their color over the course of many years due to oxidization. The longer they are used, the richer and subtler they become, dissolving into the human heart and the environment.

    Enjoy this loving, brass livingware for many years to come.
