Silver Okimono of an owl - Hideyoshi signature - Meiji Period
A silver okimono of a bright-eyed owl naturalistically modelled and perched upon a copper-patinated tree stump, red-enameled detailing on its leaves. With wings gathered behind him and his glass eyes double-inlaid, the creature tucks his gilt feet safely under his richly-carved plumage. Hideyoshi signature plaque on nether side. Height, 9". Meiji Period.
