Early 1800s

This large and heavy bronze vase has thick walls and prominent relief decoration overall, including crests on the central portion of the body. The form is in the archaistic Chinese style with motifs adapted to Japanese taste. It retains its old yellowish-brown patina which darkens on the interior. The overall condition is good, having some wear to the foot and some light verdigris. The interior has patches of lighter colored incrustations. It is inscribed on the base with the donor's name.

Height: 11 3/8 in., Width: 9 ½ in. sq.
Weight: 20 pounds.
