Chataku for sale

by MarshalN » Nov 4th, '08, 17:54

I bought these recently. It came in a lot of 9 identical ones. I only want to keep five, so I have four extra. $5 a piece. If you want all four, I'll pay for shipping :). If you want to propose a trade of some sort -- shoot me a message and we'll see if we can work something out.

They are all made of some sort of wood. I don't know exactly how old they are, but they are not new. There are words on the back of the chataku -- it says "Izumi Taisha", a shinto shrine in Western Japan that is probably one of the most famous and important.

My guess is this is souvenir bought from a visit to the shrine. The chataku are 3.75" in diameter.

I would like to purchase one, but if someone wants all four I will step aside in their favor.

+1 also!

I realize it's early in the morning, but I don't see any characters on the back...?

Edit: Oh wait nevermind, I think I see the 社 in the bottom left of the middle part.

If nobody else is interested, which I doubt, I would be happy to buy two.

Ok, so far one each, with olivierco for maybe two...

Let's wait an extra day and see whether or not anybody else wants to pick the other one up?

I'll take it if shipping to Scotland isn't too bad and you don't mind shipping it.

Ok, a chataku for every pot... all four are gone.

I think shipping to Scotland is probably somewhere in the $7 range...
