I recently bought these matching Shakudo left and right vases. As you can see they are inlaid in high relief with birds, flowering
peonies/chrysanthemums, leaves and a insect, all naturalistically worked and in gold, bronze and copper coloured metals. I think they date from mid-Meiji period (1868-1911) and are in very good condition. These vases are welcome addition to my small Shakudo collection.
Many thanks for looking
