Japanese decorative art of the Meiji period (1868-1912) represents a universe of naturalism and virtuosity and is considered one of the finest in the world.
During the Meiji period, Japan underwent a radical political and social change, opening to the West for the first time after centuries. The Meiji style, with its highly skilled craftsmanship and amplified aesthetic, originates directly from traditional Asian subjects and techniques and it applies to a wide range of materials: bronze, copper, enamel, porcelain, lacquer and, of course, silver.
