This antique set of go stones and go bowls was refurbished in our Colorado workshop.
The stones were cleaned according to our Care Instructions. The clamshells were soaked in h2o2 for a week, rinsed with distilled water, and buffed with paraffin wax. The black pieces were washed with a mild detergent and rinsed with distilled water.
The bowls are a dark brown chestnut. They are size M or L. They are in good shape, having been cleaned of their old finish and polished with Monkey Butter. One of the lids has slight chipping on the rim, while the other had a crack that was filled with beeswax.
The 180 white stones are clamshell. They have lines that are packed so thick that Snow does not quite do them justice. Rather, these clams are Japanese in origin, where the higher latitude and colder water means they grow much slower than Mexican clams.
The 181 black stones are slate.
All the stones are a unique disc-shape, rather than bi-convex or single-convex. This is very unusual and old-fashioned. We believe they are antiques.
This is a Vintage item.
