This is a very tall, 20" high, hammered bronze vase. It is in the form of a double gourd with a rather large splayed foot. This is a traditional Chinese/Asian form, however, we think it is a European-made piece, ca. 1875-1920. These are the dates that span the European Aesthetic and Art Nouveau Periods when we think this was created. . It has an impressed mark on the base that says 'G.Kopp Rozen' which is clearly not an Asian derived signature. Our research did not uncover a sculptor with that name or pin down the place of origin.
While still fabulous and clearly usable to create a brilliant display, it has withstood some wear. That can be seen on one side in a shallow dent and in the splayed base being out of round.
The vase is shown 'as found' in that the array of faux flowers were found with it. We have since discarded the plastic flowers and leaves and have retained only the gold-colored metal ones. They are included in the price of the vase, but unless specified, will not be shipped with it.
