    Hi Bluboi, this is my Shakudo Brooch.
    For people who want to know more about Shakudo, go to Bluboi forum there he will tell you some history.
    All I know about this brooch is that it was made around 1900 -1910 in what was the Meiji period in Japan. I love the 3 D effect of Shakudo, the craftsmen must have taken great pride in their work.
    Many thanks for looking.

      Jean, this is lovely! What wonderful craftsmen, with the various metals and the effects of layering. I have seen photos of the swords these artisans made and they are works of art. Here is an article on how the sword blades were made:

      Sounds like there are a lot of fakes out there.... Sigh!
