Around 1850, Japanese Decorative Arts were introduced throughout Europe where they met with immediate success. Japan produced pieces, utilizing age old techniques, that were designed to be sold in European markets. These pieces were showcased in expositions throughout the Victorian Age. This brass, Shakudo mix metal box, is an example of such a piece. It features five, animated, parading male characters in repousse across the center top, adorned with shakudo, appliqued mixed metal, birds, flowers and insects. Hand tooled and engraved.
