This rare and beautiful Japanese box exhibits a superb level of enamel artistry and craftsmanship. Formed in an elegant fan shape, this exquisite container is adorned with intricate engraving on every surface, highlighted by contrasting enamel inlay. Boasting a stunning foliate design as a background, the box features an enchanting scene of a crane standing amid irises in a tree-shaded marsh. Inside, artistic excellence gives way to sentimental value, as the interior lid is engraved with the owner’s name. The Japanese cloisonné enameling process was called shippo-yaki, meaning “seven precious things.” Crafted during the Meiji period, widely considered to be the pinnacle of this incredibly detailed art, this delightful box is a true treasure.
