Japanese Sterling Silver & Cloisonne Enamel Coffee Set Signed Meiji For Sale

Japanese Sterling Silver & Cloisonne Enamel Coffee Set     Signed    Meiji

MEIJI JAPANESE STERLING SILVER & ENAMEL GARDEN SCENE 4 PIECE TEA SET; BUTTERFLY AMIDST IRIS FLOWER; SIGNED; EXCELLENT

We are quite pleased to offer this museum worthy Japanese sterling and enamel 4 piece tea service.

Signed by the maker, stamped pure silver. And the turtle in diamond trademark of the important Japanese retailer Sanju Saku (See Silver Magazine 2006).

Meiji period Japanese silver was the finest the world has ever known. Much was crafted by former Samurai. Imperial decree had outlawed their warrior culture. Forcing the Samurai to channel centuries old sword making skills into breathtaking presentation and household silver.

The Meiji silver artisans were so highly regarded that Tiffany, Gorham and the leading British firms sent their staff to Japan to "learn" (steal) the secrets of the Samurai.

Japanese Golden Age cloisonne enamel also the finest the world had ever known.

This tea service offers the opportunity to acquire a piece displaying both the world's finest silver and enameling.

Crafted as actual sections of bamboo. Banded and accented with delicate applied leaf and twig. And gnarled rough surface as real.

Adorned with brilliant enameled Japanese garden scenes.

Silver and cloisonné enameled butterfly hovers peacefully atop iris displays.

Enameled in Ming yellow, violet, coral and lime green and more.

Each iris display distinct from others on the piece. And each pieces with unique floral stands.

Some of the floral with enamel, others raised silver alone. The set was originally made this way.

The iris set along gentle stream. The soft wavy lines represent moving water. This characterization of moving stream is specific to Japanese arts.

The coffee pot with bamboo and leaf finial. Retains the original heat stops to handle and interior strainer.

The sugar bowl fashioned as an ancient Japanese water bucket. Rare design.

The set includes the original sterling and enamel tongs, in flower petal form.

Never monogrammed.

Signed by the artist and pure silver. As turtle in diamond frame for famed retailer Sanju Saku (See 2006 Silver Magazine).

Meiji sterling and enamel Japanese coffee pot is 7 3/4 inches and weighs 17 standard ounces.

The matching sugar bucket is 5 1/2 inches and with the 5 inches tongs together weigh 6 1/2 standard ounces.

The cream jug is 5 1/2 inches and 4 standard ounces.

Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. Stands even on table or display. Cover well fit and coffee pot retains its original interior filter. The brilliant raised floral and butterfly retain their original crisp, vibrant detail. The enamel work retains its rich, vibrant color with minimal loss.

For the discerning collector of the finest hand wrought Meiji silver. An exceptional Meiji sterling silver and cloisonne enamel butterfly amidst iris tea service. Signed by maker, pure silver and retailer Sanju Saku. Excellent.

At present, Chinese silver and enamel bowls 7-8 inches are selling for $20,000 US or more. The designs are primitive. And the Chinese enamel work crude. Compare such Chinese silver enameled work with the set offered today. As you can see. There is no comparison.
