Why this is a
Masterpiece

This item is a beautiful model of 18th century manufacture. It is most probably from the Ryukyu Islands area. It is rare for its quality and its state of conservation.

History of the Object
The artifact's first model is found in inlaid containers of Chinese manufacture of the Ming period (1368-1644). Patterns of Chinese origin date back to mother-of-pearl inlaid lacquers (Chinese luodian, Japanese raden) of Chinese manufacture of the Tang period (618-907), which spread to Japan in the Nara period (646-794). Such peculiar manufacture, highly esteemed in Western culture, was very successful in Japan between the middle Edo (1600-1868) and beginning of the Meiji (1868-1911) periods mostly by means of the so-called “Nagasaki School”
