Two fine bronze and parcel gilt figures, each on a carved wooden stand with gold-lacquered scrollwork. The figures are clad in traditional Japanese attire, the man slightly crouched over his broom with a smile on his face. His companion carries a heavy water bucket, her body leaning to the side under its weight. This pair is the unique work of Miyao Eisuke, his gilt signature plaques visible on the back of each figure. Both figures are in excellent condition. Heights: 7.5” Meiji Period, Japan
