Very good condition, see description - 23×8×8 cm

Refined and elegant bronze vase with fine patina, with copper applications in relief, silver, polychrome bronze, Shakudō and gold, depicting leaves and two large Japanese chrysanthemums in bloom. Signed Jutsune with engraving.

The chrysanthemum is the symbol of the imperial house and one of the five most important holidays is dedicated to this flower.

Every year on the ninth day of the ninth month, Kiku no sekku is celebrated, the day of chrysanthemums, coinciding with the beginning of the cold season and concluding the active and creative period of the year: since the image has always been recognised in the chrysanthemum corolla of the solar disc surrounded by its crown of rays, the celebration was intended to prevent the decline of sunlight and the decline of the vital energy of men, ensuring the well-being of the community.

In very good condition.

The lot will be carefully packed and shipped within 1 or at most 2 business days from the day of payment. The shipping price includes delivery via UPS, TNT, DHL or SDA courier (depending on destination address) with full insurance and professional packaging.

Original certificate compiled by Luca Mastromauro, an expert in Japanese art, registered with Milan Chamber of Commerce (no. 2617), which will be shipped with the lot.
