Highly attractive, sculptural, large Japanese vases in richly patinated Bronze.

Late Meiji Period, late 19th/early 20th Century.


At 32cm x 45cm these matching Bronzes are unusualy large and especially decorative. The depth of colour is impressive, to say it has been finished with a Brown Patina would be to do it an injustice: It is deep and warm, Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate, it has a rich Caramel centre and Pistachio Green highlights. It is luscious. 


They are so organic in form and colour, they barely seem to be made of metal at all. They are very fluid, with the undersides particulary looking like something that belongs underwater.


Both vases are in excellent overall condition, one leaf has a small area where the patina has been lost, this being around 1mm wide and 1cm long. Both vases are signed (different marks to each vase, we only have space for one image, please contact if you would like to see the other.)
