    The black niello enamelled fan and round shaped panels are inlaid in 24k and silver with traditinal Japanese scenes of pagodas, trees and cranes etc.

Sometimes small amounts of other metals are added and often inlaid with high carat gold. Shakudo jewellery was widely known in the West as Amita Damascene, from the name of a 20th-century manufacturer of such items for export.
