Meiji Taisho Period Japanese Bronze Grapevine Vase Table Lamp

About

Gorgeous heavy Japanese bronze of Meiji period (1868-1912) vase converted into lamp unusually decorated with the most lifelike bunch of grapes trailing from a vine down the front center with the vine itself spread across the front and side of the vase. The background design is a very intricate mottled poker work style with an effect of molten bronze dripping from the top down the diameter of the vase. The condition of the vase is good with original patina and details making grapes look almost pickable; the base is good with some missing paint repaired. The bottom had a makers stamp which was drilled through for the lamp base. Sold without a lampshade. Vase size: 12' H x 9" D. Lamp size: 31" H x 9" D. In 1868 the restoration of imperial rule in Japan brought the Edo shogunate to an end, and marked the start of the Meiji era, which would last until the death of Emperor Meiji in 1912. During this brief period the country experienced radical social and political shifts, and a host of reforms which propelled Japan — closed to international trade for more than 200 years, from feudalism into modernity. The profound impact of the country’s new engagement with foreign cultures is evident in many areas of Meiji-period art, which reflected a New Era for the nation and its developing relationship with the wider world.
