Large, thick bronze 'murashido' flower vase with patinated coloring and art deco look.

Museum quality Edo Period C.1860 zen temple mizubachi. Lost wax cast with a great dragon spout in grand detail and spectacular shishi mythical lion ornament on the top of the lid. The diaper motif on the base is in raised relief and equally spectacular. The spigot on the dragon head is permanent so we are assuming that there was a constant water flow.

Also known as Uzumi or Okame, Otafuku is the name for the female half of a traditional Japanese Kyogen theatre pair She is considered to be the goddess of mirth and is frequently seen in Japanese art. Part of the Kyogen category of masks, this is a character used for the comic interlude in classic Noh plays. This mask carved in the late Meiji Period C.1910 is carved out of cypress and has some wear on the nose and stains but we think it just adds character. Her expression is sublime. H:46cm x W:40cm.
