Massive Japanese Meiji period bronze jardinière cast with four lobes in high relief with chidori (Japanese sparrows) perched on or flying among flowering cherry branches. A lappet band extends around the circumference where the top of the incurving shoulder meets the short, straight neck with everted rim. The ovoid form body rests on a splayed base. Measures about 16” high by 20” diameter. Late 19th to early 20th century. Very good overall condition with good patina. There is typical wear but no apparent damage. From an old Scottsdale, Arizona collection.
