In the tradition of jizai okimono, this silvered bronze crab features naturalistically articulated legs, pincers and gilt eyes. Chiseled and etched detailing for its extremities and carapace heighten the powerful realism of the piece. This marvelous jizai is in excellent condition with minimal wear. Length: 8" Meiji Period, Japan
