Japanese Pure Silver Presentation Bowl - Antique 1917


An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Japanese pure silver presentation bowl; part of our Asian silverware collection

SKU A2505

This exceptional antique Japanese silver bowl has a circular rounded form onto a plain circular spreading collet foot.

This bowl has a double skin, as to be expected for this type of high quality silverware.

The surface of this fine antique presentation bowl is embellished with impressive applied Japanese cherry blossom/sakura designs.

The shaped rim of the bowl is encompassed with an applied moulded border.

The underside of the bowl is ornamented with the contemporary engraved inscription 'To Mr & Mrs G Osborn from Mr & Mrs K Okura, 1917'*.

The hallmarks to the underside of this impressive bowl include:

Maker's mark: character mark for 'Miya Moto Made' (Miyamoto Made, Miyamoto Shoko**)

Silver quality/purity mark: character mark with dark background (pure silver, 1000/1000)

* There is a strong probability, that K Okura refers to Kihachiro Okura (or possibly his son, Kishchiro Okura), founding members of Okura Shukokan, the Tokyo Art Museum, established in 1917.

** Miyamoto Shoko, silversmiths since 1880, created items for the Japanese Government and Royal family, and handled pieces made by the nation's top-class craftsment in the early 1900's - as such, they were highly esteemed.
