A good Japanese Meiji period Shibayama and ivory silver mounted tankard, the tusk body decorated in gold lacquer, mother-of-pearl, coral and hardstone with water fowl in a lotus pond, the English silver mounts with impressed marks including 'Heaton Park 1895' & 'Elkington & Co, Ltd. Shibayama is the inlay of a design into an ivory, wood or lacquer base using a variety of carved natural materials of varying textures and colours, most often comprising numerous sea-shells, horn, stained ivory and wood. This is a very nice example, unusual insofar as it was mounted in English silver and retailed by the world famous Elkington & Co.
