"An oval shaped copper plate with very fine carving of 'Bukan' sleeping with his tiger next to a waterfall in the landscape. Bukan was a Zen monk and a poet who lived in the Tang Dynasty, and was known as a man of eccentricity who amazed people by riding around on his tiger.
Mei: 'SOCHI'. This could be H 08860.0, of the Goto family ca. 1800. But further study is needed." (Long)
