Japanese Bronze Meiji Period Figural Letter Opener

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This charming letter opener has a 3 dimensional figural frog stalking an insect sitting on a lily pad. The moment of anticipation, frozen in time. It's a beautiful representation of Japanese art at the turn of the 20th century. A natural and organic theme, at a time that would coincide with the Art Nouveau period in western art and design.
