ABC. (MINIATURE) MINIATURE ABC ON RICE. Offered here is a truly unique ABC, commissioned by the original owner in 1935. Housed in a wooden box 2 1/8 x 1 7/8" are SIX GRAINS OF RICE each measuring 4/16 x 1.5 16ths. Four (5 are called for) of the grains are inscribed with the English Alphabet, completed once with a fraction extra; and also there are two grains of rice inscribed "Where there's a Will there's a way." The work was done by Keiichiro Yamamoto at Omi Hachiman, Japan who used no magnifying glass or pen, simply the fine brush with which the Japanese do their writing. Over the years, one grain of the 5 alphabet grains has gone missing,but there is still at least one complete alphabet; otherwise it is in perfect condtion, housed in the original envelope with the story of the contents typed on the outside. A great ABC and miniature item.
