Japanese iron damascene dish worked in gold and silver on a matt black ground engraved with a lake scene with Mount Fuji in the background, signed Nihon koku Kyoto ju Komai sei 日本國京都住駒井製 (made by Komai, Kyoto-Japan) with the dragonfly seal mark, Meiji Period. 

The Komai Company in Kyoto was founded in 1841 by Komai Seibei.
Under the leadership of his son Komai Otojiro I 駒井音次郎 (1842-1917) the company became famous and
produced the finest damascene objects (inlaid work of gold and silver on iron ware) in Western and traditional Japanese styles, and continued to make metalwork until 1941.

Some of their pieces were exhibited at the Portland Exposition in 1905, St. Petersburg in 1908, London and Brussels in 1910 and Vienna in 1913. 

Reference: 'Meiji no Takara 明治の宝 Treasures of Imperial Japan, the D. Khalili Collection', Metalwork part I, Vol. II, no. 36.
