Large Footed Japanese Satsuma Koro with Buddhist Scene, Meiji

A spectacular and intricately detailed painted Japanese Satsuma Koro. The painted features display Buddhist monks surrounded by an encircling phoenix on either side, beautifully gilted and accented with flowers and four legs that sport foo dog faces. A large gold gilted foo dog adorns the lid and is one of the most unusual renditions that i have ever encountered, I have not seen another like it. The Koro is in very good condition with very minor wear and is a very rare example of early Meiji period art (C.1880) Measures 12 inches high by 8 inches across.
