Skull, lead alloy, Japan, 19th century

Study of a human skull in a soft metal alloy, most likely lead, perhaps pewter. Heavy. Along the temples slightly raised striation. The piece has been handled a lot and used and paper weight, which accounts for the abrasions and dents. Signature in raised technique, imitating an inlaid plaque. Japan, 19th century.
Height: 1 inches; length: 2 inches.
Abrasions and nicks, due to the softness of the material. All in all excellent condition.
