Here we have a signed, Meji period articulated Okimono praying mantis. It is made from patinated copper and a box although I am not sure if the box is original. It is in very fine condition, all the parts present and is circa 1900 with normal wear some oxidation in tiny bits. You can see the artist signature in Japanese on bottom of its body. The dimensions are about 2.5" with front arms at their highest x 3.5 " at its longest.
