A stunning pair of Antique Edo or Meiji period Japanese Shibuichi and Shakudo
button studs inlaid with mixed metals of Gold Silver and Copper. Beautiful
design with one depicting a Samurai warrior pinning notes on a bamboo wishing
tree and the other showing an Okusan. The skill involved in making these
miniature pieces of art is quite astonishing and the pictures can never do
justice to the detail. Beautiful condition. Extremely rare to find such good
and original examples from this period. Each button measures approximately 2.5
cm across. Excellent condition.
Allow slight differences in colour from the photographs and the actual item.
Also please expect slight signs of wear and age as you would expect on an item
approximately 150 years old. Please contact me for any queries or for any
additional pictures. Worldwide fully insured postage.
