Fine masterwork depicting saint and Chinese children in garden.

The base plate is fine shakudo nanako mounted in a gold case; the scene is inlaid in gold, silver, & shakudo.  There are shallow dents in the sides and back of the case and there is a slight bend in the whole piece (maybe 1 mm).  $175.
