Japanese SATSUMA Silver Backed Brooch Pin

Measurements: 2" diameter with a domed profile of 5/8" set into a silver full cup bezel with original "c" clasp. Pin stem appears to either have been replaced or re-soldered.

A gorgeous portrait of a wealthy woman of the court or a courtesan wearing an ornate kimono covered in gold moriage representing threads of gold. The hair ornaments are also golden.

Beautiful life like detail.

The only damage I see is a bit of moriage bead work missing from the frame surround.
