Subject:Help translating text and identifying a small engraved object
Posted By: Ingrid B Sun, Jan 05, 2020 IP: 18.104.22.168
Hello Asian Art forum! I’m looking for help translating text and identifying a small object I found in an antique store. I believe it’s a bead because there is a hole on either side through which a wire can be thread. The object was labeled as a “seed”. One side has a colored engraving of flowers. The opposite side has engraved text (Japanese, perhaps?)
Height: 1.25” (3.175 cm)
Width: 1.125” (2.8575 cm)
Depth: 0.75” (1.905 cm)
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
