19th century Japanese bronze / brass page turner with engraved blade and multimetal handle. The decoration on the front of the handle depicts three quails feeding among various flowers and stalks of millet, the back with exquisite flower arrangement in a woven bamboo vase. Very good work with wonderful detailing (see the feathers and finely worked flowers), pleasant patina. The blade is engraved on one side with a swallow in flight over wild orchid on rockery, and the other side with grasses on rocks. Wonderful object for writing desk. Overall length 11 inches.
