Bronze Okimono of a Puppy
An excellent bronze and gilt study of a reclining puppy resting his paw upon a bale of twigs, several still in his mouth. The remarkable execution of this adorable piece, the soulful facial expression in its gilt eyes, the realistic rendering of the animal’s fur and the perfectly accurate delineation of the puppy’s nether side, speaks of bronze okimono at its best. Yoshimasa’s engraved signature on base. Width: 6”, length: 6” Meiji Period, Japan
