Antique sword-stand for Samurai sword. The wood has a glossy coating, and it has a brown color. Flowers and small birds are designed on both sides. It seems birds are taking a rest at twigs. These motifs are probably made by the Raden (螺鈿) technique. It is a kind of decorative technique that is often used for traditional craftworks. It uses the pearl part of seashells and puts it into the engraved surface of lacquer or wood. Thanks to its iridescent luster, it gives a luxurious look to works as you see in this sword stand. The irregular color change of the shells gives a completely different look than artificially painted with paint. We hope you will enjoy the collaboration of its natural beauty and its maker’s skill.
You could enjoy this item as the sword-stand or an interior decoration in your room.
