Nice vintage Japanese Crane on Turtle, measuring 7" tall, with nice patina. The listed price is for one, but we do have a pair of them, matching.

“Tsuru Sen-nen, Kame Man-nen”

(As the Crane one thousand years, the Tortoise ten thousand years)

…is an old Japanese saying describing the symbols of youth and old age (long life), the Tsuru (crane) and Kame (tortoise). In Japan, every element of the natural world has a sacred side for Shinto, and the religion promotes harmony between the divine, humans, and nature. A lofty tree, a towering waterfall, or a wondrous mountain were believed to possess kami and were made objects of worship, and the sea was recognized as the source of life.
