Superb work of art. It represents the quintessence of Japanese know-how in mastering lacquer work, inlaying stones and in the carving of mother-of-pearl and ivory, ie shibayama.
In the shape of an octagonal, multi-lobed tray, in silver filigree, inlaid, in each lobe, ivory plates decorated with spring flowers finely chiseled in gold lacquer.
The tray rests on 4 legs also chiseled and a single ivory plate is chiseled with a floral decoration. In the center of the lacquer plate is a cartouche with the signature of the artist: Masa Mitsu.
