Go Sighting #31: Meiji Maki-e Go Set with Agate Go Stones

Recently saw a Japanese auction with this wonderful Meiji Era (明治時代) maki-e go set with agate go stones. So gorgeous it would be superfluous for me to further describe with words. Just enjoy these beautiful pictures which I was able to find and share with you all.

    The bowls are museum pieces. The pictures are very sharp to show details The bowls have straight walls and not curved walls. This the second time I saw straight wallis bowls.

    It was certainly out of my budget. Unfortunately I can’t remember how much the final bid was.

    Amazingly beautiful.
    Is there a reason why the side of that goban is black? ive seen that on a lot of larger ones, but dont understand why?

      Usually for the gobans I have seen that are painted black on the ends, it is to cover up the signature grain of a wood cut considered inferior by goban connoisseurs.
