Meiji Japanese Mixed Metal Box Artist Signed Seashells Gold Silver Copper Inlay For Sale
Antique Signed Bronze Japanese Mixed Metal Box
I'm selling this lovely heavy bronze mixed metal Japanese box with seashell decorations and silvered interior from the late 19th century Meiji period.. The box is a very high quality, samurai style work and signed, although I am unable to read the signature.
The hand carved flying cranes on the silvered interior are of high skill. Some time ago this box was polished, and has lost a significant amount of its dark brown patina. It could be repatinated, but I have never minded the surface, so never considered it.
HEIGHT 3/4 Inch ( 2.2 cm )
WIDTH 3 7/8 Inches ( 7.3 cm )
DEPTH 1 3/16 Inches ( 5.5 cm )
WEIGHT 175.3 grams
I sell most of my items on with a reasonable reserve, often at my cost, and always less than what
I would expect
the item to sell for.
Very careful packaging is part of my shipping cost to anywhere in the continental USA or elsewhere.
If you desire to have your purchased insured, I am happy to do so if you request it, but that would be at your cost.
should contact me for shipping costs before final payment is made.. Please feel free to email me if you need
additional information or images.
