A pair of large bronze menuki with silver and gold detailing. Formed as two distinctive scenes from the famous Sino-Japanese legends referring to the Three Kingdoms’ war heroes – Kwanyu, Zhang Fei and Lu Bei, their various recognizable characters are visible under gnarled pine and snow-topped huts. The menuki are finely executed with repousse and chasing techniques, their sculpted overlays in gold, silver, copper and shakudo. This exceptional set of menuki is in excellent condition. Lengths: 3.5” Late Edo /Early Meiji Period, Japan
