A rare miniature shodana, its form, double doors and drawers identical to those of an actual piece of furniture. Framed in patterned, two-toned gold, the iron doors and drawers are incised and gold-inlaid with scenes from nature: lakeside scenes with boats, floral sprays and a samurai on horseback with attendant. Mt. Fuji and a writhing dragon cover the underside in kaga-inlaid silver while on the top shelf in high relief, a naturalistically-sculpted parrot poses on craggy, raised rockwork. Height: 4.75”, length: 6.25”, depth: 2.5” Meiji Period, Japan
