Description and Details
We are pleased to offer this Japanese Meiji Era (1868-1912) silver vase with intricate engravings.
The exterior features a high polish finish "Jungin" silver - as identified by the base hallmarking of "純銀" which translates to "pure silver". This mark was utilised during the Meiji Era signifying 1000/1000 parts silver purity, living up to its name in the form of the maximum silver purity.
The engravings feature mountain ranges, with possibly Mt. Fuji in the background with two Japanese pagodas in the foreground. Further engravings of "Matsu" pine trees extend from the rocks beneath.
Some fine gilding has been applied to certain areas of the engravings such as the highlight points of the pagoda and the sun in the sky.
An exquisite and fine piece of Japanese silver ideal for adding an oriental theme to a collection or as a one-off piece for display and usage.
