A rare and finely cast bronze Crane made in Ming dynasty China (1368 - 1644). Cranes were most popular on blue and white ceramics during the reign of the Jiajing emperor (1522-1566) but, although similarly modelled duck form censers bearing the Jiajing reign mark are not unusual, bronze cranes from this period are extremely rare. Unusually, this item carries a makers mark which reads "Ri Xin". Condition - excellent - there are minor losses (to the tail) probably sustained at the time of casting but no damages, repairs or restoration. 35.5 cm (14 inches) high. Weight 2.2kg (4lb 12oz).
