A very interesting and rare miniature bronze replica of what looks to be Mount Fuji, complete with the smaller Mount Hoei, a flank volcano, which appeared in the 1707 eruption during the Hoei era of the Edo period (1615-1868).

At the base of the volcano, trees made in relief may be seen; evidently the volcano is not shaped to scale but the image still conveys the magnificence of the sacred mountain.

The bronze dates from the Meiji period (1868-1912), but the wooden base is probably later made, and not removable.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The bronze is in very good condition. A few old marks (made by paint?) are visible at the bottom of the replica (see picture 8).

Dimensions: 30 x 19 x 10 cm (12 x 7.6 x 4 in), weight 1.35 kg (3 lbs)
