Here's a heavy Japanese bronze vase with mixed medal work dating from around 1912 to 1926. It has a signature of the artist on the side and the mark of the Nogawa factory on the bottom - one of the highly respected manufactures in Japan for many years. The subject is a magnificent rooster with wonderful long tail feathers sitting on a flowering tree branch. It is 4 7/8" high. The condition is very good - free of dents or scratches.
The mixed medal work that Japan is famous for is very sought after. This piece is priced to sell.
