Massive Japanese Meiji Period Bronze Vase

About

Of baluster form and unusual size, yet still retaining elegant proportions, the lobed body rising from a splayed lotus pedestal foot, and surmounted by a short neck with a finely cast band of chrysanthemum flowers in various stages of bloom. Two large elephant mask handles adorn either side of the body. A scene of paired birds perched on blossoming peony branches cast in high relief decorates either side of the vase. The interior base set with a silvered bronze mirror featuring a traditional design of cranes and pine, along with a large two large characters, and a lengthy inscription. The bronze displays a rich, reddish-brown, chocolaty patina. The vase was previously used as a pedestal base for a center table and would be suitable for such use again. Ex. Christie's, 2013.
