Terumitsu (1785-1847) is considered the fourth
master of the Ōmori family school, living and working in the Asakusa
district of Edo. Terumitsu is the fifth son, and heir to, Ōmori Teruhide (third master of the
Ōmori school, famous for his wave designs, among others). The "Kinko Meikan" states that
Terumitsu "succeeded to the
leadership of the family over his [four, older] brothers and continued the traditional style
of his father, Teruhide, making it even more magnificent."
Copper frames, shakudo-nanako plaques, and
gold pine trees, combine to produce this very striking set.
