Japanese Typewriter Key Marsh Grass Stamp Vintage in Showa Period by FromJapanWithLove

5.00 USD

We were lucky to come across a case of these "katsuji" (Japanese Typewriter "keys"). There are over 2300 of these. They are Vintage but have never been used. These would have been the extras in case the ones in the machine broke. Please look at the last picture to see what an old Japanese typewriter looked like. There were at least 2000 keys so needless to say, this was only used in businesses.

They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at least 30 years old as Japanese stopped using them once the word processor was invented.

This would be perfect for using as a stamp with ink or for stamping clay etc.

This stamp is the Kanji (Chinese character) for "薛" "setsu" = "marsh grass".

It measures 2.3 cm long (long enough to be able to get a nice grip) and 5mm wide. The Chinese character itself is about 5mm wide....so please note how tiny it is. It is made of metal.
