A bronze vase of baluster form, inlaid and overlaid with multi-metals and colored enamels on a copper-patinated surface. A brilliantly chiseled sparrow, its body silver and gold dives in mid-air through blossoming sakura branches. The spontaneity of the carving and richness of the multi-colored metals heighten the drama on this piece. The vase is in very good condition. Height: 14.5” Meiji Period, Japan
