Gold, Silver and Bronze in Japan – July 2021

7th August 2021

When there is so much world attention focussed on athletes striving to win bronze, silver and gold medals in Japan, we are taking our own look at Japanese use of these metals in works of art.  The hakko bako, above, are Edo period and would have been made for a noble family.  Although functional, the black lacquer is richly embellished with gold lacquer heraldic devices and gilt bronze mounts.
