Lot 0060 Details

Early Showa period (1910s) Japanese mingei (Arts and Crafts) copper box with chased and enameled decoration of four flowers with leaves - I am sure it is possible to identify the flower species. Wonderful combination of uchidashi (hammered-out) and moriage (piled-up) techniques: metal was raised from the opposite side and raised surface was subsequently heavily enameled and fired. Crisp work with thickly laid enamel, clever use of transparent enamel on petals with bright copper surface showing underneath and giving it depth, beautiful textured surface of the box, perfectly folded rims, excellent patina, in great condition. Lined on the inside of both body and lid with beautifully patterned textile. Stamped with Ando mark on the bottom. Length 5 5/8 inches, width 3 3/8 inches.
