A rare, unusually-modelled sentoku suiteki, similar to a box, a marvelously wrought mokko-formed tsuba its lid. Formed as a suiteki (water dropper for calligraphy), delicate sprays of leafy vines in low relief cover its nanako ground. This rare metalwork piece is in very good condition with only minor wear to the base, commensurate with age and use. Length: 3.5” Meiji Period, Japan
