An exquisitely crafted Japanese silver lady's handbrush. The brush is deeply chased and repoussed. Iris flowers and leaves contrast beautifully against a textured background - the design and high quality of the workmanship indicate the brush may have originated from a Yokohama workshop.
Age: circa 1890-1920
Marked: Japanese character marks for "pure silver"
Condition: good condition for its age. There is a small bump to the tip of the brush - see photos for more details.
Size: approx. 10 inches (25.5 cm) in length; approx 3 inches (7.6 cm) in width at the widest point
