This Japanese vintage artist made bronze cast paperweight with an adorable karako was made about 30 years ago. The popular motif used of a karako is a Chinese child. He is cute. Its length and weight make it perfect for artwork and drawings of any type, Brent even said it would work on his large drawings of buildings so I guess for landscapes and architecture as well to hold those annoying ends down! It is closed on the ends and is well made and sturdy. It is sleek.
It is excellent condition, no cracks or chips. Please see the pictures and ask any questions. We are non-house smokers and do not smoke around our wares and our very careful with them to have clean hands and in the packing. We are careful to check incoming items for any unusual smells. Again please let us know if you have any questions. This is a purchase from a well- known and honest, antique dealer from Japan and this is a quality high-grade piece. I am working on changing some of our incorrect translations from copper to bronze so if you have any questions please let us know. Although it is hard to tell sometime with the dark patina which it is!
