A pleasing variety of display types, the proprietor of Sanseysha, no. 19 Takeka Wacho, Shinbashi Street, Tokio, Japan, urges all who might wish to purchase Shokaken bronze vases, etc., to "call at my shop your visits when you have the want to buy these things. We shall finely manufacture as possible as we can on your demand." An ephemeral promotional piece of early Japanese manufacture for the export trade, albeit on a small scale.
