Here is an utterly beautiful bronze vase made by the Nogawa Japanese factory founded in Kyoto in 1825. I am attributing it to the Meiji Period (1868-1912) since many of its wares were exhibited during that time. It well may be older that that period. It measures 4 inches tall and is made of solid bronze. It has one flower, the iris, on the front, made of gold, silver and brass and carved into the bronze itself. It has the Nogawa mark on the bottom (see photo). It is signed by the artist (unknown). It has a few dings near the top and bottom of the vase due to age. The bronze has never been polished and has darkened over time with light and dark spots in places. It could use a good professional cleaning. Nevertheless its beauty shines through as you can see from many photos. Thank you for your interest in this lovely and timeless item.
