Fine Japanese Meiji period silver bowl with extremely detailed iris decoration. The bowl of double skin form boldly decorated with realistic iris stems and flowers jumping away from the bowl with incredible hammered detailing throughout. The top with a pinched rim into the hammered outer and a smooth inside, stood upon a splayed foot rim with Jungin two character mark to the bottom centre which translates as pure silver. Silver from Japan that has the Jungin mark indicates that the silver content is around 95% and typically was used during the Meiji period through to the Showa Period. The bowl is a fine example of Japanese silver with top quality decoration to the exterior with real depth and definition from every angle.
