Japanese Art Nouveau Meiji Period Patinated Bronze Vase, circa 1900

$18,000

About

Although unmarked, this rare and important, grand but at the same exquisite patinated bronze vase has just a very few little details, defying the shape of the handles, as well as the base, depicting an overturned lotus flower; clearly suggesting the organic motifs being artist’s inspiration. Purely Japanese in its overall aesthetics and the imaginary simplicity of its form, this amazing work of applied art by an unknown master certainly bears the influence of Europe, which began to manifest itself in the absolutely closed Japanese society at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Dimensions: Diameter 18.5 inches Height 24.75 inches Handles span 13.75 inches.
