Antique Japanese okimono gilt bronze rooster crafted in the shokado method of casting comprised of bronze, gold, and silver. The cockerel's feathered body is finely chased and carved, delineating each feather with gilding and blackened patinated silver this is infused into the finish.

Detailed gilt feet, beak, and eyes using the same technique except the red lacquered Comb of the cockerel. The realism of the sculpture is a test to the Meiji period craftsmanship.

Meiji age (1868 - 1912)

Size: 10" L x 5" W x 12" H
