Here is a remarkable covered Japanese silver ewer decorated with iris in high relief. A ferocious three-toed dragon encircles the band about the shoulders, while on its tapered body and handle, elegant iris rise from a pond, surging waves in high relief with incised details, below. On the base, "Made by Watanabe", "Jungin" (Pure Silver). This ewer is in very good condition, a minor dent on the side of the dragon. Hardly discernible, this minor dent does not take away from the overall beauty of the piece. Height: 14" Meiji Period, Japan
