A rare Meiji period 1868-1912 iron and mixed metal panel by a highly important early Meiji period artist. The ironwork panel housed within its original hardwood frame depicts the charming subject of a roaster fighting with snake, this particular early Meiji period panel demonstrates all the skills of a leading Mito school metalworker more used to making tsuba and sword fittings for the shogunate and now adapting his unique skills to satisfy the emerging western market, the naive charm and inspiration for this study is probably from an earlier Japanese or even Chinese painting, artists with such breathtaking metalworking skills as this artist could simply replace an artists paintbrush with a chisel and produce staggering quality works of art,this artist would have been very adept working with such soft alloys as gold, silver and shakudo as this panel clearly demonstrates, signed within a bronze signature and housed in its original period frame, a staggering work of art from a leading Edo / Meiji period metalworker.
