A lost wax casting bronze suiban signed by the artist Watarikumo. His teacher, Murata Seimei, a noted artist, lived 8/13/1761 - 11/24/1837. No information could be found to document Watarikumo's life span. Watarikumo became the second Murata Seimei. The suiban is in overall good condition - there is some loss of patina, and a patch of oxidation - please see last photo.
