A fabulous pair of bronze and gilt menuki beautifully housed in a silk-padded kiriwood box. The beloved design of karashishi botan is rendered here with extensive texturing and chiseling. The shishi, with curly manes and tails, cavort among gilt peony flowers, their bodies muscular, their eyes gilt-inlaid. This pair of menuki is in very good condition with minute signs of wear, commensurate with age and use. Lengths: 2.25” 19th Century, Japan
