Additional Information —
Toshikane was a Japanese company from Arita, Japan, that fabricated porcelain and silver jewelry, dating back to the early 1940’s. Each Toshikane design has a distinctly Japanese look and feel, incorporating iconic elements such as the Seven Lucky Gods, Noh masks, famous landmarks, and exotic bird and flower designs into their creations. Usually set in silver, (950), the porcelain pieces are intricately enameled in a variety of vibrant colors. Because they are no longer fabricated, Toshikane pieces are now a rare find and are highly collectible. This piece demonstrates the highest skill in ceramic art in Japan.
