A Myochin-style iron box of rectangular form, a young stag contemplating maple leaves cascading over a dramatic waterfall, all with gilt detailing and in high relief. Bold modeling and chisel work heighten the drama of this poetic scene. The anonymous artist embellished the dark iron metal with precious gilt and silver. This covered box is in very good condition with slight surface wear on cover and gold leaf interior, commensurate with age and use. Interior lined with embroidered silk pad. Length: 6”, width: 4.5” Meiji Period, Japan
