My pictures do not do justice to the elaborate, three-dimensional silver work under the translucent, dark, cherry red enamel. There are moths hidden among the flowers and leaves, and there is a depth to the design that you must admire in person to appreciate. As the sunlight skips over the delicate, gleaming petals of the most pronounced flowers, the rest of the intricately wrought design falls in varying degrees into the shadows.

Yabu Meizan was born in Osaka, Japan in 1852. He learned to paint Satsuma in 1880 and opened a factory the same year. In the years that followed, he won many awards and held many positions of importance in his field.
