Fabulous Japanese Meiji Silver Mixed Metal Box W Gold, Bronze & Copper Signed For Sale

Fabulous Japanese Meiji Silver Mixed Metal Box W Gold, Bronze & Copper Signed

For sale here we have a very special antique c1900 Japanese silver lidded mixed metal box that depicts a pair of nicely detailed roosters amoungst straw bales and is signed on the front in characters as well with a crest or signature emblem and has a full signature on the bottom edge as shown. This wonderful box was produced by a skilled craftsman around the turn of the century or c1900 during the Meiji period and is lined with an exotic wood species and is of considerable weight for its size being 1lb 3.8ozs or 562gms. The other metals besides silver are gold as in the feet and beaks along with copper, bronze and a greyish/black material on its tail feathers. The details are excellent with the two roosters being performed in raised relief with finely executedfeathering, heads and feet along with further engraved details there is one signature on the front bottom right along with a inlaid gold crest or signature emblem as well as a fancy well done signature engraved deeply to the bottom. Condition is as follows. I have not cleaned or tried to polish the box so the top shows a couple of small stains but has a beautiful feel and patina to the finish and the sides have numerous small dings and the bottom has scratches from moving it about but the signature remains proudly displayed and the inside needs a good clean and polish to the gorgeousspecimenwood but as I mentioned it is a very special box of the finest quality. Sizes: Width 5-1/2" x Depth 4-3/8" x Height 1-3/4" x Weight 1lb 3.8ozs or 562grams. I believe the maker is well known based on what I have been told and due to the two signatures but I did not do any research but all in all it is a gorgeous box and very well done so good luck!
