Silver and Shibuichi Okimono of a Terrapin Family
A shibuichi and silver okimono of a terrapin family clambering upon the surface of a wood stand formed as a rocky slope. Expertly chiseled in the gleaming metals, this unusual rendering of parents and youngsters provides a visual foil against the richness of the modeled wood. Ryuki signature on underside of the larger turtle. This charming okimono is in excellent condition with neither damage nor restoration. Length: 10" Meiji Period, Japan
