A mottled bronze vase of globular form with an impactful moriage rendering of a lone lobster with inlaid shakudo eyes upon its surface. The sea creature is naturalistically detailed and spans the width of the exterior. On the interior of the vase, a removable otoshi serves as a vessel for flower arrangement. Double signatures: Tesshin koku on the side; Yoshimasa on the base. This patinated-bronze vase is in excellent condition. Diameter: 9”, height: 6.5” Meiji Period, Japan
