Absolutely wabi-sabi murashi-do bronze flower vase in its original paulownia wood box. Dated Showa 27 (c.1953) the kanji on the box reads it was a dediction for a new building in Osaka for the Osaka Bank. Made by Shobi-Do, the premier maker of fine silver and bronze works in Osaka in the post-war era. Murashi-do is a bronze patinated technique where the bronze is dipped in hot oil after firing to achieve the lovely coloring effects. H:27cm x diameter 9cm. Ask for shipping quote.
