£10,000-15,000 Cf. C Sinclaire, Samurai, The weapons and spirit of the Japanese warrior, pp130-131, and I Bottomley & A P Hopson, Arms & Armour of the Samurai, pp.124-125, for other examples of Japanese inlaid hand cannons. Also, the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, access. no.2892-D3. The maru ni kuginuki mon was used by several families, including the Hori Clan. Tekkai is typically depicted here as a sennin (immortal hermit), wearing a coat and skirt made of mugwort leaves and carrying a tall wood staff. Tekkai Sennin was an Immortal who blew his soul out of his body in order to meet his master on Mount Hua. When his spirit tried to return, he found that he had been cremated. He thus had no choice but to inhabit the body of a lame beggar lying nearby.

Illustration from Inatomi-ryu teppo densho (The Inatomi School’s Secrets on Shooting with Guns), a Japanese matchlock training manual from the 17th c. showing a man firing a similar type of carbine. These drawings often feature scantily-clad subjects to depict accurate body positioning.

This type of large teppo carbines known as ozutsu (‘cannon’) was mounted onto castle walls to protect it against invaders. They were also used on ships, on horseback, as assault weapons to blast through door hinges and to launch incendiary or explosive arrows (hiya) to set fires during sieges. These powerful firearms had large recoil and bails of rice would be necessary to support the gunner’s back. Heavy round lead balls were used as ammunition, with sizes described as monme. Taking 30-monme shots, this carbine is one of the largest examples of Japanese Edo Period hand-held firearms. By the 19th c., these had become obsolete and were only used to call monks to prayer, to signal the time in cities, and for official inaugurations. Yoshihisa was a gunsmith from the Musashi Province, an area stretching today from Tokyo to the Prefectures of Saitama and Kanagawa.

Signature in the helmet

Provenance: from the collection of Sir Henry Norman (1858-1939) on display at Ramster Hall, Surrey, and thence by descent. Saotome Iehisa lived in the Hitachi province (today in the Ibaraki Prefecture, Honshu) and he is sometimes listed as the ninth generation of the Saotome family of armour makers.

SIR HENRY NORMAN (1858-1939) Sir Henry Norman 1st Baronet Privy Councillor was an English journalist and Liberal politician. He worked as an editor for the Pall Mall Gazette and later the News Chronicle, becoming its Assistant Editor in 1895. In 1887, the Pall Mall Gazette sent him on an interviewing tour around the world. It was planned that his tour would last for at least six months, although he actually remained on tour for nearly four years, travelling through numerous countries including Canada, Japan, China, Korea, Siam and Malaya to name a few. As far as the history of the press was concerned, such a tour was an exceptional venture, and so Henry Norman’s journey and the various newspaper articles he wrote during his travels garnered much attention. By the time he had returned to Britain in 1891, he had seen more of the world than most others of his generation or position and he used information collected throughout his tour to write two travel books about East Asia, both of which were enthusiastically received. In both The Real Japan and The Peoples and Politics of the Far East, he explores various aspects of these cultures and enthusiastically recounts his countless exciting experiences, many of which occurred during his time in Japan, Hong Kong and Beijing. In 1899, he retired as a journalist and subsequently became a Member of Parliament. He was knighted in 1906 and was made a baronet in 1915.

243 A JAPANESE WOOD AND GESSO MODEL OF JIKOKUTEN KAMAKURA OR LATER The fierce-looking Guardian King standing on a couple of disgruntled jaki demons, one hand on his hip and the other raised, wearing an elaborate Chinese-style armour with monster masks-shaped belt hook and sleeves, the demons’ and his eyes inlaid in glass and with traces of polychromy, all raised on a rectangular base simulating rocks with a long inscription underneath, 96cm.

£4,000-6,000 Cf. The Freer Gallery, access. nos. F1977.12-14-19-28 for a complete set of the Shitenno in wood and polychome. Jikokuten is one of the four Guardian Kings of Buddhism, Shitenno, and the Protector of the World associated with the East. These sculptures were placed in Japanese temples to symbolically protect the Buddha in the four cardinal directions. According to the legend, the two demons getting trampled by the god were originally evil but later repented and now carry lanterns to light up the road for the Buddha. They are sometimes referred to as Tentoki and Ryutoki and they represent the power of the four Heavenly Kings to repel and defeat evil. The design for this statue is probably inspired by the figure of Jikokuten in Kofuku-ji Temple, Nara, dating from the Kamakura Period (1185-1333) and designated as National Treasure.

244 A PAIR OF JAPANESE BRONZE FIGURES OF GUARDIAN DEITIES, NIO MEIJI 1868-1912 The Kongorikishi typically depicted with wrathful expressions, Misshaku Kongo with his mouth open and holding the mallet vajra-pani, Naraen Kongo carrying a short staff, both standing on rockwork and wearing flowing skirts with long ribbons, their muscular chests left bare, with highlights cold-painted in red, 55.5cm. (2)

£1,000-2,000 These figures are modelled after Ungyo and Agyo, the two large 13th c. cypress figures of benevolent gardian Kings at Todaiji temple, Nara.

This figure is probably inspired by a famous portrait from the Kamakura Period (1185-1333) depicting him in a similar fashion.

The Frank Robertson Collection Lots 285-298 The Frank Robertson Collection of netsuke Frank Robertson collected netsuke for more than 40 years. After reading about them in an article, he purchased his first piece in 1968 and didn’t stop collecting until his death in 2014. As a tall person (he was 6 foot 5), he found collecting small objects fascinating. He became a regular buyer in antiques shops across Scotland, London and Amsterdam and his book collection grew fast as he learnt about carvers, subjects and materials. Frank purchased hundreds of netsuke and so lots 285-298 represent only a small portion of his collection.

From the R. Soame Jenyns Collection Lots 333-336

333 A RARE JAPANESE NEGORO-STYLE LACQUER CUP STAND, TENMOKU-DAI MUROMACHI (1333-1573) OR LATER The hollow bowl on a delicate mallow-shaped dish, the hexagonal foliate body rising on a splayed foot, the surface decorated with scrolling designs in low relief, with a paper label for ‘Mayuyama & Co., Tokyo, n.41’ to the inside of the foot, 16cm dia, 8cm high.

£2,000-3,000 Provenance: previously the collection of Soame Jenyns (1904-1976), purchased from Mayuyama & Co. Now the property of an English gentleman, purchased from Spink. Cf. J Watt and B Brennan Ford, East Asian Lacquer, The Florence and Herbert Irving Collection, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, pp.181-182 no.74, for a comparable negoro lacquer tenmoku-dai and a discussion on the uses of these cup stands throughout Japanese history. Also, see Christie’s London, The Soame Jenyns Collection of Japanese and Chinese Art, 1-8 November 2018, lot.131, for another Japanese lacquer piece from Jenyns’ s personal collection bearing a label for Mayuyama & Co., Tokyo, n.37. This cup stand is an unusual example of Japanese red and black negoro-style lacquer with relief decoration. The elegant shape is based on the Chinese zhantuo, the tall stands used to hold ceramic bowls for tea. The practice of drinking tea after meditation was introduced from China to Japan by Eisai (1141-1215), who popularized both tea drinking and Zen in the country. These elegant stands, inspired by the classic early Ming six-lobed shape, became popular in the Muromachi era (1333-1573) and remained prized throughout the Edo period for the more formal style of tea ceremonies.

R. SOAME JENYNS (1904-1976) Roger Soame was an important scholar and collector of Chinese and Japanese art. After working for the Hong Kong civil service where he learnt Cantonese, he joined the British Museum, later becoming Deputy Keeper of the Department of Oriental Antiquities. Jenyns is also known for his seminal works on Chinese and Japanese art, including Later Chinese Porcelain (1951), Ming Pottery and Porcelain (1953), Wares of the Transitional Period between Ming and the Ch’ing 1620-1683 (1955); Japanese Porcelain (1965) and Japanese Pottery (1971), among others. In the 1960s, he left London for Japan with the aim of writing a book on Japanese lacquer which he never completed. During his time in Japan, he was shown around the country’s best collections by his friend Haruo Igaki of Mayuyama & Co. The paper label on this cup stand shows that Jenyns also purchased pieces from the respected dealership. Many Japanese pieces from Soame Jenyn’s personal collection are currently on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Soame Jenyns

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1. Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand. 2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller. 3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive. 4. The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4%) inclusive thereafter. 5. VAT. (†) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax. 6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale). 7. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. 8. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. 9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). 12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges. TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1. Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers. 2. Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above. 3. Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility. 4. Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable. 5. Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue. 6. Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. 7. We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve. Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8. Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. 9. Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request.


10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it. 11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate. 12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking. 14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest. (a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement. (b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque five weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale. CONDITIONS OF SALE

Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded.
