Vintage Japanese Typewriter Key - Japanese Stamp - Kanji Stamp - Metal Stamp - Chinese Character - Mean - Low:



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 鄙 hina / iyashii = mean / low. 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. The last picture shows just how many of these keys were in the machine. It is not included. For more typewriter keys, please click here http://etsy.me/2c6YQgQ

Japanese Hand Towel Traditional Tenugui 100% Cotton Sushi Blue | eBay





Japanese Hand Towel Traditional Tenugui 100% Cotton Sushi Blue | eBay



This hand towel is called a "tenugui". A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton. It is typically  plain woven and is almost always dyed with some pattern. It can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth, dishcloth, but often as a headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However tenugui are still popular as souvenirs, decorations, and as a head covering in kendo, where it functions as a sweatband, as extra padding beneath the headgear (men), and to identify the participants by team color.


It is 33 cm x 90 cm  and is 100% cotton.
