Reply below. This vintage Japanese damascene - nunome zogan metalwork fan necklace is expertly rendered in what is often described as in the style of Komai. The clasp is marked K24 for the highly decorative 24K gold metalwork of multi figural butterfly, bird, moon, boat, flower, etc in gold silver inlay motifs. Acquired from an Amita jewelry collector. This is so well executed that it is very likely an unsigned Amita necklace.
