A bronze vase of bottle form with fluted and flared neck, is remarkably chiseled to simulate bamboo culms with leafy branches. Gilt-eyed sparrows in high relief are rendered on branches emerging from a bamboo grove. The surface of the vase is worked in high relief, naturalistically,with carved and incised detailing. The incised signature of Morimitsu can be found on the base. This vase is in excellent condition with no dents, damage or restoration. Height: 17” Meiji Period, Japan
