Here is a remarkable and rare silver bowl with cover, its finial formed as a fully- carved iris. The bowl itself is executed with many iris, buds and leaves boldly rendered in high relief emerging from a stylized pond, its leaves turned and overlapping in a naturalistic manner. This bowl is a perfect example of the unique mix of baroque and quiet nature-inspired design, a theme used in all Japanese media, captivating the avid collectors of the arts of the Meiji Period and continuing to fascinate western collectors today. The interiors for the bowl and lid are double-walled, characteristic of fine Japanese silver. This piece is in excellent condition. Height: 6", diameter: 6.75" Late Meiji Period, Japan
