A fascinating shakudo oval flask vase carved on one panel with myriads of sea creatures in high relief. On the reverse, intricately sculpted flowers and vegetables in gold, silver, shakudo and copper define the characteristics of each. The naturalistic details and fine workmanship evident on this small jewel of a vase are characteristics of the household name in Meiji Period metalwork—Hattori, its signature seal on the base. This exquisite multi-metal vase is in excellent condition. Height: 5.75” Meiji Period, Japan
