A masterful rendering of an unusually large rooster posturing in full stance. The metals used are copper, silver, and gold. The major body of the cockerel is called shibuichi which is meticulously composed of silver and copper mixture. The feathers are beautifully sculpted and chased in details. The movement of the feathers pronounce the figurative composition. Its tail feather is patinated and infused into the silver.

Signed "supervised by Shueki" in cartouche on body. Stands on carved wooden base.

Provenance Kevin Page, London

Early Meiji Period (circa 1870's)

Size on Base: 28 1/2" high x 21" wide x 12" deep.
