Q199. Shakudo Fuchi Kashira with Bold Gold Kiku
Q199. Fuchi kashira in shakudo. The inside dimensions of the fuchi are 1.9 x 3.6 x .9 cm tall. The chrysanthemum in gold is raised noticeably above the plate; either the plate has been carved in raised relief and the gold is nunome or the gold is a thicker foil adhered to the surface. Quite nicely done in either case and there is no loss of gold. $295.
