As part of our Japanese art collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual high quality mixed metal koro or incense burner , this fine and heavy little item is made from a Japanese alloy known as Shibuichi , the technique was devised by mixing alloys with silver to produce a wonderful grey to brown bronze skin, the shibuichi is then inlaid using gold and depicts a pair of ho ho birds amidst a mixture of oriental foliage , the koro is nicely finished off with the addition of a pierced silver lid .

The condition is quite superb ,it is far too heavy a gauge to be dented or damaged and only has minor wear commensurate with its age.
