This is an antique Japanese sterling silver set mother of pearl scenic brooch with Shakudo figures of a lady being pulled in a rickshaw. The Shakudo figures are set against a mother of pearl background scene painted in gold and red. The scene is probably Mount Fuji, but the mountain portion of the design is worn. The back is marked with Japanese characters and has an old fashioned pin stem with T hinge and C clasp. The metal of the setting tests positive for silver content of sterling grade. The brooch is rectangular with cut corners. The bezel has a simple rope border.

This brooch weighs 8.6 gr. It measures 1" x 1.375".

Condition is overall good, though the mountain portion of the scene is worn. Setting has natural patina of age.

Shakudo is an alloy of copper and gold used in Japan to decorate small items. The gold content is usually between 4-10%.
