A rare and superb Japanese Shibayama box encrusted with hundreds of detailed engraved flowers & leaves of mother of pearl, abalone & ivory. The base & lid have a silver rim, which helps to protect the delicate mother of pearl.
The lid lifts to reveal a beautiful finish called Nashiji Lacquer, which is also replicated on the base, the center of the lid has a mother of pearl plate which bares a signature.

The technique of Nashiji is achieved by using ground flecks of gold, silver, copper and other metal alloys, evenly sprinkled between layers of clear lacquer, creating the spectacular speckled appearance. To the centre of the interior lid is a rectangular piece of mother of pearl, which bears a Japanese signature.

This Japanese Shibayama box would make a fantastic addition to any collection.
