doban, a display in bronze

Post  dick benbow on Sat May 31, 2014 11:25 pm

not having too much luck finding any that I can use to display my stones in. was curious to hear from others that may want to share a picture and method of having found one. I did some networking and found someone who has worked with bronze before and need to follow up and see if thry can help. In the mean tme would appreciate a few thoughts and comments

If I'm reading the numbers of lookers with no takers, then I would suppose that many like myself are interested in the topic, yet none so far have anything to share.

I love the subtle beauty of doban with a high class stone and have always wanted one. Most antique stores don't carry them but ocassionally friends have co-erced owners to bring them back at terrific expense.

one of our stone club members is making his own, but doesn't want to sell any as the process can often fail, causing numerous re-dos
that would double and triple the price.

I'm still hopeful, that someone at sometime will have a good story to share and a few photos....Smile

I have 2 dobans...they look the same...this one is the small....


The best thing you can do, is to contact a friend or person you know, and ask him or her to buy one for you at the "Green Club" in Tokyo ( here you find many)...show your stone to your buyer-helper, and hope a nice doban will be brought home to you...or go for your self  Smile 

kind regards Yvonne

While you're on eBay try "Japanese brass tray", Japanese bronze tray" & Japanese copper tray". You would be surprised what pops up. Some are quite usable.
