Shizuwa Loom Weights
A set of six glazed ceramic loom weights used in silk weaving. These are each marked 十五 (15) to show they weigh 15 monme. This is an old measurement equal to about 3.78 grams so each one weighs about 56 grams. They're 5cm in diameter. Old ones like this are generally sold as paperweights - but there must be other possibilities in creative hands! Mid-late 20th century.
Price includes GST and regular postage within Australia
