Meiji period, ca. 1880

The bronze disk forming the base is decorated with an evening floral scene with an inlaid silver moon with incised stylized clouds. The incised plum branch is set with inlaid gilt copper flower blossoms. The large blossoms in high relief are overlaid with silver and have inlaid gold leaves and copper leaves in relief. The well is finely woven to resemble bamboo basketry using thin strips of patinated copper and finished off with a rim in bronze convincingly cast to look like bamboo. Good condition with excellent craftsmanship, some light wear and mottling to the patina, unsigned.

Diameter: 10 ½ in.; Height: 1 ½ in.
