Item:223576445231Antique Shibayama Japanese Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) Plaque - Converted Into A Wine Table - Magnolia, Butterfly & Ladybird In Shell & Bone - Signed On offer is this interesting little converted wine table, probably effected in the late 19th/early 20th century. We believe the top to be a Meiji period Shibayama plaque (signed by the artist), or wall panel, that has been fixed onto a tripod base to make a very attractive wine table with a limited, but adequate, space for a couple of glasses & a bottle of wine - the inlay being in high relief - can stand alone as a decorative piece in the aesthetic movement tradition of it's age. The decoration is a Magnolia tree in a Bamboo pot. The foliage appears to be a mix of mainly shell and some bone and, upon close inspection, is seen to be very skillfully carved with folds and veins in the petals. Other features are a Ladybird on a flower and a butterfly in flight. The stems and pot are wood. The table is approximately 21 Inches tall x 16.5 Inches diameter top. The base is a hexagonal stem ending in a turned feature with 3 carved scroll topped legs joined to it. We have described this piece to the best of our knowledge but do not profess any great expertise in this subject so please view and use the photographs to make up your own mind.N.B.
