  • Description
    PRESENTING a GORGEOUS, VERY HIGH QUALITY and EXTREMELY RARE piece of Japanese Meiji Period Sterling Silver 2 Handled Basket by Katsu Miyamoto.


    This is definitely a Meiji Period piece due to the fact that it is marked with the sterling silver mark “jungin”.

    The Meiji period was from 1868 to 1912 and in 1928 a law was introduced in Japan compelling the use of decimal marks for silver.

    This pre-dates that decimalization law.

    We are of the opinion that it is from circa 1900.

    This basket is of the HIGHEST QUALITY imaginable!

    The top of the basket has the MOST GORGEOUS repousse work of flowers, probably lotus flowers, with leaves and foliage. It has an underlying chevron effect chasing, reflecting parquetry.

    The 2 handles are cast in the form of bamboo handles.

    The rim of the top likewise is cast as bamboo.

    The base is equally stunning in a different way!

    It is chased with a chevron effect, like parquetry flooring and the four feet simulate pieces of sliced bamboo with an interlinking gallery of support columns, likewise, simulating bamboo.


    The pieces weighs exactly 525 grams.

    Provenance: Acquired from a Dallas Private Collector.
