Japanese Antique Satsuma Box
An unusual covered Satsuma box of ogee- form with a delightful scene of a fox wedding procession on its lid. On the rim, the visual whimsy so evident in this extraordinary piece continues with delicate scroll work inhabited by groups of mischievous children tugging at leafy vines. In the procession, the stunning foxes are clad in rich enameled kimono as they soberly make their way through tall pine trees. On the interior of this rare box amusing scenes of gleeful children are engaged in joyous activities. The covered box is signed with the Kaizan gilt mark on base and is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Length: 4" Meiji Period, Japan
