Delightful Miniature Trinket box, probably used for incense in the Meiji period, 1868 - 1912. Decorated by hand, the top picture cascades over the sides. Climbing Clematis and Wisteria overhang Chrysanthemums, Iris and foliage, all executed in bright colours and fine goldwork. Fine gold brush work is extended to the rim and around the top and bottom of the base. Inside the base the floral decoration is repeated. The whole sits on a base rim foot. Highly skilled, fine and delicate painting result in this exquisite item. Signed to base.
Condition. Excellent. No wear to the gold work. Faultless. Would make an excellent and unusual gift.
