The brooch was likely made after the end of the samurai era. When the shakudo workers had less work to do so turned there hand to other items. Features a samurai warrior on horseback with a sword. Inlaid in different colour gold and silver.
The work is very well detailed and of the highest quality even the way the gold Mount has been put on is nice the way the gold attaches onto the horses hoofs. Weighs approx 12.2 grams. Open to any questions etc. Please check out my other items.
