$0.00

This item is out of stock

An exquisite and highly detailed antique Japanese enamel spoon of Japanese magnolias, attributable to Sanju Saku. It dates from the Meiji period (1868-1912). The back of the bowl, as well as both sides of the handle are finely worked and engraved. The spoon handle terminates with a little bee sitting atop it. Although unmarked, it tests with acid as sterling silver; as is customary with Japanese silver, it probably has silver content greater than sterling. The spoon has nominal enamel loss which is only visible under a 10x loope. It is in excellent antique condition.
