Yatate with Compass Basin
This yatate has been sold. See the TOKOHAN catalog for currently available yatate.
An unusual yatate with an additional compartment atop the ink basin that originally contained a directional compass. There is a silver ring, engraved with twelve kanji, encircling the compass area. The compass cap is adorned with a silver accent bar.
Apparently, the upper portion of the yatate handle had an additional component at some point in the past, as you can see where the solder was originally applied.
