It was a strange day at the auction. I was outbid on what I really wanted. The bidding went to 30,000 yen in a last gasp type of bid. That is to say, if I had put in one or two more bids I probably would have been able to get the lot. It was a box full of coral and kanzashi. Maybe next time.
I picked up 4 sets of plates, a large tray, and bottles.
