This article is a best quality pure silver metal work, impressive Japanese Jyungin(100% pure silver) covered jar with Shibayama decor on the ivory made body.
The covered jar has high quality and beauty of Meiji art.
Shibayama decor entailed the extensive use of inlay designs complemented by makie images.
Ivory, shell, coral, tortoiseshell, tusk, and other materials are used for the inlay.
The makie is applied to any remaining space.
The big difference from the mother-of-pearl inlay work(Raden) using a shellfish as well as the Shibayama work is the point that the Shibayama work is the relief in which the surface is a rise.
This design style was originated by "Shibayama Senzo" of Shibayama, Shimosa Province(north-central Chiba Prefecture).
This pure silver covered jar has real Shibayama inlay decor with many flowers and a basket design.
The pure silver handles are phoenix shape, chrysanthemum ornament which is an amazing silver work on the cover.
Artist name of metalworker "Mitsunobu" on the base, and Shibayama Makie artist name on the side of the body.
It is excellent in condition except some places of very slightly wear and damages by age.
The top of cover, chrysanthemum ornament has small restoration.
Dating from Meiji period, 1868-1912.
