Original Rare Circa 1900 Small Japanese Shinto Firebird Phoenix Gong! The gong itself is approximately 14.9 cm (5 12.8/16 inches) in diameter. Which should give you a very good idea of the dimensions of the entire set up which is the type of gong set up you would see at a Sushi restaurant, how-ever they usually use more modern gongs. As images 9 and 10 indicate there are some damages, which come with being handled for such a long time.
The temple mount is old but of a later date. Please feel free to check out my other Japanese Art Gongs!
