Truly exceptional 'Sentoku' bronze flower vase with original kiri paulownia wood box. Sentoku is an antique bronze firing technique used before the war employing mixed metals of bronze , copper and spelter fired with straw to create an elegant coloring effect. This vase has color and remarkable bronze craftsmanship. Two pagodas, a maple tree and two sailing ships in spectacular relief move in dreamlike state through undulating hills all performed in a metal composition. A thing to behold. One of the best bronze vases we have ever seen. On the cover of the box is written: Sentoku Kabin (flower vase). On the inside of the cover is : Rushodo tsukuri ( kiln where it was fired). The bottom of the base is signed "Hirokazu". Ask for shipping quote. H:27cm x 16cm
