This sweet little brass 3 ¾” diameter nib or pin dish is decorated with blossoms in pinky-white and wine colored flowers set on a cool green background with very fine metalwork. The inside is a gorgeous turquoise enamel while the bottom is the same green as on the outside. There is no wear on the dish, but there is tiny pitting in the enamel that you see so often see in old cloisonne pieces. There is no loss of enamel or wirework. The brass has darkened over the years to a nice patina. It is very faintly marked by hand on the bottom China.
This would be a wonderful addition to your Asian or cloisonné collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
