Kamakura-Bori Lacquered & Carved Brooch – Sakura

A very rare Kamakura-Bori lacquered and carved brooch in the form of a Cherry Blossom, (Sakura). The Cherry Blossom is Japan’s most popular and meaningful symbol, and is rooted deep in the Japanese psyche. Elegant in its simplicity, and dating approximately 1890, with a sterling “barrel clasp” pin back, it is signed by the artist. Evoking an early period of Japanese personal decorative arts, this is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. Dimensions: 1-5/8”w x 1-¼”h x ¾”d
