Antique Japanese Meiji Period Bronze Ikebana Container circa 1875

A fantastic antique Japanese Meiji period bronze Ikebana container circa 1875 in two parts. The broad flat section of bronze lifts out of the base providing ease for arranging the chosen flowers. Its flat surface also represents the beauty of a still pool from which the flower arrangement rises as if by magic. The base is particularly resonant for those with knowledge of Japanese history. The bronze is decorated with gilded highlights that enhance the design referring to the chrysanthemum. The emperors of Japan are described as occupying the Chrysanthemum Throne for over a 1000 years of unbroken rule. It could be supposed that this Ikebana flower container was reserved for the special display of this favourite Japanese flower, the chrysanthemum.
