Rare Antique Japanese Meiji Komai Style Inlaid Bronze Vase Gold Signature For Sale
RARE Antique Japanese Meiji Komai Style Inlaid Bronze Vase Gold Signature
Hello buyers. Up for offer today is a stunning Komai style bronze vase. This vase is decorated with small panels with herons and a owl. The vase is in a hourglass shape with a banded waist. I originally thought this was a inlaid bronze but it appears almost as a lacquer over bronze or copper. The vase is quite unusual, it is signed with a 5 character mark to the underside in gold. The vase is in good uncleaned condition, there is a some small amount of wear around the bottom lip of the vase, one small spot on each side of the vase that has lost it's "paint". Again, I am unsure of the actual material the decoration is made of. The vase measures 6" tall. Quite an unusual piece. Take a look at the photos and if you have any questions feel free to ask, or if someone can tell me what the markings are. Check out my other sales for other qualtiy items. Thanks and good offerding.
