A brilliantly-conceived silver kogo, its reticulated lid with an animated dragon writhing in high relief among convoluted clouds. The powerful imagery is enhanced through the use of gilt detailing and the appearance of the dragon’s milieu, tumultuous waves rising from its base. The excellent chiseling and design signals this piece as the work of a master silversmith. This outstanding kogo is in excellent condition. Diameter: 3.25” Meiji Period, Japan
