Japanese Sterling Silver Dragon Scholars Box Meiji Signed Rare For Sale

Japanese Sterling Silver Dragon Scholars Box      Meiji     Signed    Rare

FINEST JAPANESE STERLING SILVER DRAGON BOX; RAISED DRAGON & PEARL AMIDST ROLLING CLOUDS; MEIJI MASTERPIECE

We are quite pleased to offer this Meiji sterling silver dragon box.

Meiji period Japanese silver was the finest the world has ever known. Much was crafted by former Samurai. Imperial decree had outlawed their warrior culture. Forcing the Samurai to channel centuries old sword making skills into breathtaking presentation and household silver.

The Meiji silver artisans were so highly regarded that Tiffany, Gorham and the leading British firms sent their staff to Japan to "learn" (steal) the secrets of the Samurai.

The box in classic rectangular form.

The cover adorned with brilliant hand raised dragon in streaming fire. Clutching the sacred pearl in its three claws. Here the pearl in orb form, one of the most rarely seen pearl renditions.

The dragon with long razor tip fangs, bulging saucer shape eyes ablaze, and long flowing tendrils.

The side panels with continuation of the rolling clouds, though here engraved rather than raised.

Never monogrammed.

Signed Japanese characters.

The rare Meiji dragon and pearl scholars box is 3 1/2 by 2 3/4 inches.

Exceptionally thick heavy guage sterling weighs 5 standard ounces.

In excellent condition. Rich brilliant sterling patina. The brilliantly carved dragon in clouds retains its original crisp vibrant detail. Cover closes flush. Few scattered tiny spots of solder, shallow pinhead bumps to interior, single tiny nick to back cover edge.
