Fine Japanese Buddhist Keman 19c with dedication
From a midwest estate comes this fine signed Japanese Buddhist devotional plaque executed in gilt bronze and depicts a rarely found dedicaton/inscription for its donor, mid 19th century. These were temple offerings hung inside the temple as blessings to Buddha. This is a complete temple offering measuring a substantial size: 27" high x 14" wide.

This plaque hung in the temple named Zuiryuji in Osaka, Japan. This temple is famous for having on display an alleged authentic mummified young dragon found washed ashore on a beach in China, bought and donated by a Japanese person. This blessing was made to (exact name does not translate) a "female follower of Buddha for contributions made by her to this temple"

Pleasing to your eye, this example has been well cared for and is destined for the finest collection. Estate fresh, unusual opportunity.
