"This remarkable work shows the best of its type from mid to late Muromachi period ca.1450-1500. It is a shakudo plate with raised rim folded over in panels on itself. The plate is divided into nine panels with floral designs in each. The gold decorative cover to the hitsu ana is a later addition. This must have been owned by a high ranking Daimyo, for it was very expensive when first made. It also shows the independant imagination of the artists of the Muromachi period, it is not the cookie-cutter work of the Edo period.

Certified by NBTHK Hozon dated 1991. Mumei Ko-Kinko. Nothing else." (Long)
