Superb Japanese Bronze Censer, Meiji Period (1868-1912):
$787


Offered for sale is this superb Japanese bronze censer in the form of a Pheasant perched on a tree stump, carefully watching a snake at its feet.The item is beautifully cast and the detail is sumptuous - the tree stump looks real and even has small bits of bracket fungus growing from the bark.Created during the Meiji period (1868 - 1912) the high level of craftsmanship of this piece is typical of the era.The plumage and the details of the pheasant's anatomy really bring the figure to life - as does the deep patination of the bronze.The bronze is 59 cms tall and is offered for sale on a carved wooden stand.The censer part of the sculpture is secondary to its decorative value and is very cleverly hidden between the plumage of the pheasants shoulders - a small, single feather stands slightly proud of its neighbours, allowing it to be used as a small cover which can be lifted to reveal a small chamber into which burning incenese can be placed and the cover replaced (see last 2 pics)
The quality of the whole item is superb as can be seen in the pics.I can email more pics on request!The bronze is offered in a sale.Good Luck
