This is a lot of SUMI-E brushes. They came from an art store that went out of business
and some still have price tags.  

SUMI-E is the Japanese word for Black Ink Painting. East Asian Painting and writing developed together in ancient China using the same materials —brush and ink on paper. Emphasis is placed on the beauty of each individual stroke of the brush. 
The Chinese speak of “writing a painting” and “painting a poem.”

Bamboo and sumi brushes have become popular with watercolor artists for detailing and fine lines, 
while the hake brush is used much like a square wash.
