About

Here's a rare find from a collector we visited in Japan. A very unusual treasure from Japan. This is a cache of old Chinese and Japanese bamboo paint and calligraphy artist brushes dating back to the 1930s. The bundle includes new and used examples some still in their original mint encasements never before used. Many bear the original old manufacturer name and label.

The outer bristles are normal goat hair which has the known characteristics of high ink absorbency whereas the inner bristles are made of goat beard hair which has a far higher resilience. This combination gives strength to the tip making brushes with this combination sought after high quality. Large and small fine brushes included, 25 different brushes in all. Longest brush is 10 inches long and shortest brush is 6 inches in length. Unique offering. Only one group is currently available This quality and quantity rarely seen or offered.
