antique Japanese yatate

A great yatate (antique Japanese portable brush case) made from a copper alloy. Simple design with a rather thick ink basin deck and solid hinge. This yatate opens on the standard right hand side. The lid of the ink basin consists of two pieces of metal sandwiched together. This was perhaps done for the purpose of increasing the lids weight thereby helping to keep the lid closed when not in use. It appears that there was originally a small piece of metal applied on the yatate ink basin lid, on the right side of the hinge.
