Provenance:   Robert E. Haynes NFS

The kogai is made of black shakudo (赤銅), with a very finely punched background of nanako (魚子地). The fine nanako on the plate is worn down outside of the high relief motif, and along the edges. This is a normal characteristic of such old kogai. The motif itself is executed in high relief or takabori (高彫).
