Pair Antique Japanese Meiji Period Silver Inlaid Bronze Cabinet Vases, C. 1900
Pair: Antique Japanese Inlaid Bronze Cabinet Vases. Finely crafted, the vases of tapered ovoid form with short stepped necks and circular rims, the front of each with shaped reserves depicting similar interior scenes with figure of a man in Edo Period dress, the back of each with scenes of song birds flying amid bamboo; the surfaces cast in low relief, engraved and heightened in gold, silver and copper inlay. Unmarked, the base of each mounted with later bronze stands with stiff leaf pattern edge. Dimensions: Each: 6.8" high x 4" diameter (17.2cm x 10.1cm). Total Weight: 5.67 lbs. Overall, the vases are in fair condition with appropriate signs of age. Both vases have been drilled, presumably for mounting as table lamps.

The base of each vase has been removed and mounted to a separately cast bronze stand by two screws (they can be removed). The top rim of each vase drilled with tapered holes along each side (presumably for mounting a cap/fixture).

The surface of each vase with mottled oxidation to the metal, areas of scratching/wear and a small shallow dents. Despite the surface wear and alterations, the vases remain an attractive pair.
