As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this Meiji Period 1868-1912, iron and mixed metal koro (incense burner) fully signed by Tozan Katsunobo, the globular iron vessel is predominately decorated with a coiled silver dragon wrapping itself around the entirety of the vessel, the beasts eyes, claws and stylized flames highlighted in gilt, the globular koro rests upon a purpose made iron and silver stand, the vessels interior is silver lined with a delightful pierced inner lid for the release of incense, for me personally the most appealing aspect has to be the exceptional quality silver & mixed metal decorated Tiger, captured in an aggressive pose upon a rocky outcrop, a super quality incense burner fully signed Tozan Katsunobu and sealed Tozan.
