Carp Brooch, 15th century Kyoto, Japan

Carp Brooch

Hand cast in sterling silver or plated pewter. Image 1 3/4" diameter.  With history.

 

   Twin Carp leap joyously on what was once a 15th century Samurai sword guard from the ancient city of Kyoto, Japan.

   The symbol of fortitude and "stick-to-it" determination, carp often appear on Japanese military gear.  

   More than a pretty face our brooch is designed to hold reading glasses too!  A useful and memorable gift to give or receive.
