Antique Japanese large bronze suiban, or shallow dish for the display of viewing stones and small plants. The legs have been wonderfully casted to resemble gnarled vines, or perhaps a Buddha's hand citron fruit. One side of the suiban displays a raised dragon flying through incised winds. The other side shows two lounging tigers. The entirety of the suiban has a beautiful, natural patina due to antiquity. Late Edo Period - Early Meiji Period (circa 19th Century) Size: 6.5" height, 19.5" length, 13" width
