A Japanese Silver Kogo with Dragon - Meiji Period
A brilliantly-conceived silver kogo, its reticulated lid with an animated dragon writhing in high relief among convoluted clouds. The powerful imagery is enhanced through the use of gilt detailing and the appearance of the dragon’s milieu, tumultuous waves rising from its base. Unsigned. Diameter, 3.25". Meiji Period.
