As part of our oriental collection we are delighted to offer this most unusual Japanese onlaid iron vase from the late Edo early Meiji period , the vase probably made by a retiring sword fitting maker in the 1860/70's is finely onlaid in mixed precious metals of gold ,silver and shibuichi amongst others , the body is decorated to the front with a bird sat upon a rose bush , the reverse with reeds and other exotic flora , the neck is finely inlaid in a silver archaic style pattern with a silver lining to the interior rim , the side handles also have that archaic look about them and the vase stands on a nicely shaped iron skirt .
