This is an unusual round, silver kogo on its own irregularly formed pedestal base. Pierced and incised, a stylized design of ho-o and detailed gold plum blossom on the textured surface. Interior is smoothly polished. Jungin "Pure Silver" cartouche and etched Kobayashi signature within leaf-shaped cartouche can be found on base. This box, most likely offered as a wedding gift, is in excellent condition, with slight irregularity to the base. Height: 1.25", diameter: 2.5" Late Meiji/Taisho Period, Japan
