TAKEDA BROTHERS 武田 兄弟 洋行

HISTORY

In 1916 K. Takeda founded his own curios shop, "Takeda Yoko" or "Takeda Co." (武田洋行). Eight years later, in 1924, his brother joined him in his business and the name of the company was changed to "Takeda Bros. & Co." (武田兄弟洋行).

Takeda brothers' company imported and traded damascene wares from Kyoto, turtle shell products, Satsuma porcelain, lacquer ware, gold and silver inlaid crafts, bronze, ivory, silk, china ware, embroidered pictures and other art objects.

In the late 1930's the company management has been changed, but the name remained the same. By the 1944, Takeda Broshers' company is still seen in the records, with the operational income of 80,000 Yen.
