This is a lovely quality Japanese bronze jardinière in fine antique condition dating from the late 19th Century (Meiji Period). Birds of different species in various positions of flight are cast in high relief around the outside of the bowl. The detail in the birds and the trailing plants, which are cast in lower relief, is exquisite. Maker's mark is located in the centre of the base underside. It is a large decorative bowl which would look fabulous in the right location such as on a centre table or a coffer.
