Here is a charming bronze and parcel gilt figural okimono on an elaborately carved-bronze stand. A young monkey trainer attempts to control his trainee as it engages in a one-to-one wrestling match with a rabbit. The amusing figures are modeled naturalistically, as if caught in mid-motion. This dynamic okimono is in very good condition with no defects and no restoration, a wonderful addition to any collection. Height: 7" Meiji Period, Japan
