This is for a nice original antique Japanese brass page turner with both a finely detailed copper handle and two fabulous hand engraved scenes down its length. The handle is double sided, in that the scene on the front is then shown from behind on the other side. The man, warrior or fisherman, i am not quite sure? is above a large koi thrashing in the water and he is holding a scroll. Its possibly a depiction of the tale of Benkei , or Oniwaka. The fish is nicely detailed with an ornate wave design on both sides. There is a fish also engraved into the brass length of the turner and birds flying on the reverse of the turner. It is in excellent condition with a nice warm unpolished patina to both the brass and the copper. It measures 12.5" long by 30mm (1") across at the handle.
