An early and fine cloisonne napkin ring made by one of the best makers of Japanese cloisonne in the late 19th century, Namikawa Yasuyuki. Measuring 7/8" wide and 1 3/4" in diameter. With 3 butterflies, flowers and scrolls on a slightly speckled tan background and a typical arrow like boarder. These napkin rings are pictured in the photo from 1902 by C.H. Graves from one of the world exhibitions. Very good condition. Minor pitting only seen under 7 power magnification, minor wear to gilding. Unsigned, as many of the earlier pieces are not signed. The work speaks for itself, and as also seen in the exhibition photo.

New York buyer pays their county tax on item and shipping charges unless valid tax number and resale certificate provided.
