A Round Makie Lacquer Kogo - Landscape - Meiji
This is a handsome small lacquer kogo (covered box) with a landscape design executed in gold makie lacquer. The scene shows a pavilion on a shore shaded by large evergreen trees the pavilion placed near the opposite shore across a lake. On the near shore is another large tree that appears to be on a small island and surrounded by the stylized waves of the lake.

The interior of the kogo is totally decorated in nashiji (pear skin) lacquer whilst the bottom of the box has more nashiji in a darker shade of lacquer and with the sprayed dots of gold slightly wider apart than on the interior. The kogo measures 2" diameter and is 1/2 deep. It is in very good condition only two small frits or nicks one on the top rim and one on the base. We date the piece to the middle Meiji period, circa 1880s 1890s.
