Here is a spectacular okimono of a pair of bronze rabbits, one recumbent, the other, seated. These charming creatures exhibit rich patination and delicate incised and chiseled detailing on the fur, face and paws, so that, together, they appear to be very real and engaged with each other. Each rabbit is signed: the recumbent rabbit signed HISAMITSU and the standing rabbit signed KOKE. The okimono is in excellent condition with no dents, scratches or restoration. Standing rabbit measures 9.5" Height, 8.5" Length; recumbent rabbit measures 9.5" Height, 8.75" Height, 8.5" Length. Meiji Period, Japan
