Antique Japanese Decorated Bronze Baluster Vase from the Meiji Period

$4,938.56

About

This beautiful antique Japanese bronze vase has a baluster body set on a splayed foot. The bronze vase is expertly decorated in high relief with a scene depicting two playful bears in the mountains. There is a sealmark within a square on the base of the vase. The quality of the bronze relief, in which the bear fur has been naturalistically rendered, is a great example of the quality of Japanese craftsmanship during the Meiji period. The Japanese Meiji period occurred from the late 19th century until the early 20th century. During the early Meiji period, the Japanese government promoted Western art and architecture. However, the enthusiasm for this soon died down, and there was a strong revival of traditional Japanese artistic styles. Indeed, many of the techniques and materials used to create the most popular Meiji style of decorative arts were over one thousand years old. The Japanese Meiji period produced some of the most beautiful and highly prized works of art in Japanese culture, a stunning example of which is the present antique bronze vase.
