Up for sale is an Antique Meiji Signed Japanese Yoshida of Kyoto Bronze Vase Censer Bowl VERY RARE!!! This is a very nice and rare Meiji Period bronze urn/vase from Japan signed by Yoshida of Kyoto.
It can be used as an urn or vase or censer as there are some holes in the top to allow smoke to exit. It is an all original piece with a beautiful darkened patina to it and some verdigris on the inside of the unit.It depicts raised floral and natural accents around the vase with face form handles on the side. The lid prominently features a beautiful Komainu Lion. This piece is in excellent condition for its age. It is an all original piece with a stunning aged patina to it, and has not been cleaned or restored or altered in any way. There are a couple of small damages to the piece which should be noted, including one crack on the base where the bottom is beginning to separate from main urn on one side, as well as one dent on one handle where it has pushed into the main piece a little bit. There are otherwise no major issues with this piece besides general wear as expected, and there are no broken or glued on pieces or anything like that. I would say overall this piece is in excellent display condition. The piece measures in at approximately 13" tall, 10" wide (at handles) and 8 deep. It weighs in at 7 pounds, 15.1 ounces total. Any questions just ask, thanks for looking!
