A fine bronze bottle vase with silver lip. On its surface, a meticulously detailed scene of a parent tortoise, eyes gilt-inlaid and young upon its carapace, crosses the river—a true act of parenthood. The scene is chiseled in high relief on a mottled, copper-splashed ground, water ripples in low relief. Excellent condition with no problems and no restoration. Height: 11” Meiji Period, Japan
