A rare silver covered box of Daikoku - Unno Moritoshi Signautre - Meiji Period
A rare silver covered box by one of the Meiji Period’s most formidable and highly-regarded metallurgists. On its mirror-like surface, Daikoku, the god-of-wealth, atop two richly-gilt rice bales, rattles his mallet, an assortment of magical amulets scattered below. The entire visual, modeled in great detail and in high relief glows with extravagant use of gold, silver, shakudo and copper. Incised signature and seal of Unno Moritoshi. Storage box. Width, 3.85"; depth, 3,74". Meiji Period.
