As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual and fine quality Japanese vase by the Nagowa factory , the moon vase body is made entirely from the sought after shakudo alloy with the two oval panels having a slightly different shade and made from shibuichi, the vase rather amusingly depicts all that you would require for a fine Japanese sushi meal , the artist has simply captured in the most exquisite detail the foods that remain the staple diet of Japan, one side shows various fish , lobster octopus and crab in the finest possible detail using a mixture of gold, silver and other mixed alloys ,the reverse shows an array of vegetables, leafs and beans again picked out in fine detail.

This truly special vase has the Nagowa factory seal impressed to the base and is nicely artist signed to the side panel,a rare treat for your collection in wonderful condition throughout.
EXCELLENT
For a similar vase attributed to the Hattori Company see ; The Nasser.D.Khalili collection of Japanese art - Metalwork part II Plate 90 .
At that time it was thought the seal mark was from the Hattori Company,new evidence now suggests the seal to be the Nagowa factory.
