A shakudo, silver-lined covered box in octagonal form. On its lid, a marvelously modeled cockerel stands fast at the base of a heavily carved tree while his family forages for food nearby. The use of gold, shibuichi and red enamel, chiseled in minute detail and in high relief creates visual drama against its glossy shakudo ground. Includes wooden owner’s box. This stunning multi-metal box is in excellent condition. Height: 3.5”, width: 3.5”, depth: 1.25” Meiji Period, Japan
