Here is a fully-articulated and naturalistically wrought bronze crab okimono (jizai), its carapace wonderfully sculpt with chiseled details,the pincers in textured bronze. This articulated crab has beautiful, rich patination. (The Japanese, master metalworkers and technicians, achieved true-to-life articulates in bronze, iron and ivory and this one is a prime example of this discipline.) This bronze articulate is in excellent condition with no problems. Length (outstretched): 9" Meiji Period, Japan
