A complete ink block writing set which was a Japan Air Lines JAL souvenir from the 1980s. The set includes an ink/water stone, a small ink block, brush with a 2-part handle and a porcelain water dispenser. An enclosed paper with inlaid silk threads has text in English and Japanese and diagrams showing how to use the set.
It’s all enclosed in a black box with a gold JAL logo and text on the cover. Everything is in new, unused condition, except for a small tear on the cardboard covering the ink block.
This is a scarce Japan Air Lines JAL collectible, that could still be used for traditional Japanese calligraphy.
Very nice :) My intent was to purchase a calligraphy set with a quality stone/suzuri that I can hopefully use for a lifetime, but with brush, inkstick, and water dropper suitable for a beginner. It seemed unused and is more than sufficient for my purposes. I had also messaged the seller to ask about the stone and got a straightforward and timely response (a truthful and matter-of-fact answer).
I would definitely recommend this seller, but would also recommend asking about every aspect of the product which matters to you so that you can make your purchase with complete confidence!
