T276. Kotsuka in Shakudo & Gold
T276. Kotsuka in shakudo and gold. 1.4 x 9.7 cm. My best guess is that this depicts a kago, Japanese for palanquin, an enclosed chair on poles used by high ranking people when they want to be carried around by lower ranking people. There is loss of gold from use on the front and a few shallow dings on the back. Otherwise condition is excellent. $175.
