A graceful pair of iron vases on self-pedestal bases, their bronze handles sculpted as stylized dragons. On their bodies, silver-lined cartouches exhibit brilliant sprays of autumnal maple leaves and kiku in high relief. Executed with the characteristic use of red enameling and precious silver and gold and alloys, the lush flowers and foliage on these vases, combined with rich patina and texture, all indicate the work of this master Meiji Period metalworker. His classic Suzuki Chokichi signature seal and double mountain marks are located on the bases. Heights, 10.75" Meiji Period. Japan.
