A heavy cast bronze vase, elegantly shaped with a round body, long neck and two elongated handles. A dragon with waves crashing around it is cast on the neck of the vase. The bronze is very smooth and soft feeling with a dull gold finish.
The vase has a shallow rounded foot. There are no marks or labels.
10 ½” (26.7 cm) tall x 4 ¼” (10.8 cm) diameter. Weighs 2 lb 7.5 oz (1120 g)
There are no cracks, chips, or breaks. The finish has light spotting from age and oxidization. It may have been over cleaned at one time but has an aged finish now.
A very well designed and executed Japanese bronze with a great dragon motif. It has such a nice heft and feel. It will look great in the home.
