In excellent condition

Pair of large solid bronze vases from the Meiji Era (1868–1912), made into lamps during the 1920s.

The vases are richly decorated, different from one another and are both decorated in relief with birds: cranes, which represent longevity (they are the figures most commonly associated with the new year and weddings, as can be seen on many uchikake - wedding overcoats), swallows, which represent loyalty in marriage and fertility.
Two elephants on the handles (strength and serenity) and to complete the decoration, both vases feature cherry blossoms: the brevity of the cherry blossoms and the delicacy of the flowers are associated with the brevity and wonderfulness of life, reflecting aspects of the Buddhist culture and the "precariousness of things".

Dimensions
Base: diameter 14 cm, max. width 26 cm
vase height 45 cm, height with lampshade 70 cm

Original patina

The photos are an integral part of the description. Shipping via express courier.
Happy bidding to everyone!

    Sei un bugiardo. Al postino "Bartolini" hai FIRMATO che hai rotto la scultura 3 giorni dopo che ti é arrivata! Ti ho proposto un rimborso per pietà, ma sei sparito per 8 mesi! Ti denuncio a Catawiki!

    The worst package I ever got. So badly and unprofessionally packed that the ivory okimono broke when I tried to open it.
    So, I’m very up sad with the seller.

    You're a liar. You paid the lot 27 days after winning it. And only because forced by catawiki. After receiving the feedback, I called you and offered you a refund after seeing the broken glass. You answered that it was not true and that the negative feedback you put it only because you bought something you did not want. When you do not want to buy something you do not have to bid.
