Vintage Japanese Typewriter Key charge blame by VintageFromJapan

Vintage Japanese Typewriter Key charge blame by VintageFromJapan

We were lucky to come across a case of these "katsuji" (Japanese typewriter "keys"). There are over 2300 of these. They are vintage but have never been used. These would have been the extras in case the ones in the machine broke. Please look at the last picture to see what an old Japanese typewriter looked like. There were at least 2000 keys so needless to say, this was only used in businesses.


They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at least 30 years old as Japanese stopped using them once the word processor was invented.

This would be perfect for using as a stamp with ink or for stamping clay etc.

This stamp is the Kanji (Chinese character) for "semeru" = "1.charge, blame 2.disgrace 3. demote 4. punish".

It measures 2.3 cm long (long enough to be able to get a nice grip) and 5mm wide. The Chinese character itself is about 5mm wide....so please note how tiny it is. It is made of metal.

Kobayashi Kokei Gokuraiku no ido Vintage Japanese Print

I was so happy to find this print! In this print there is an amazing image of girls drawing water from a well. This is an insert from a magazine. This is called Gokuraiku no ido by Kokei Kobayashi. The original painting was exhibited at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. 

Kobayashi Kokei, original name Kobayashi Shigeru (born Feb. 11, 1883, Niigata prefecture, Japan—died April 3, 1957, Tokyo), artist who greatly contributed to modern Japanese painting.

It is vintage so there are some imperfections. These photos show cuts, folds and discolorations. It is old. 

On the back there is a story about Kobayashi Kokei and This Painting "Gokuraku no ido" (well in heaven). 

*It is magazine insert and folded in 3 because it is long. 

This would be beautiful framed and displayed but it could also be used in mixed media art.

It measures about 42 cm x 22 cm.
