19th century round Japanese kogo (covered box for incense during tea ceremony) made in cloisonne technique. Simple elegant shape with decoration of an iris growing by a stream, and cherry blossoms and petal on a dark blue background with scrolling wires. Rim is silvered on the inside, nice finish with original pitting, green enamel on the inside with original firing bubbles. Great humble piece in Japanese taste. Diameter 2 1/2 inches. Part of a small East Coast kogo collection.
