HIGO
   
79mm x 69mm x 5mm
 
The surface shows one typical appearance of the Higo school in 16-17th century.
The shaping work is skilful. This shape that outlined with four arcs is called "mokko".
The spider's thread is put with gold. The rim is a little turned up, and some ridge-like tekkotsu appears on it.
