As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this Meiji period 1868-1912 , Tokyo school bronze okimono of two boys playfully wrestling, this captivating study has been cast by the highly regarded and well recorded Tokyo school artist, Izumi Seijo (1865-1937) , on this occasion working on commission for the Kaneda company. Seijo has used an oval bronze base as a platform to cast and sculpt a couple of young lads playfully wrestling with each other, the facial expressions tell a tale of joyous determination as to who will topple first, each character finished in exceptional detail as you might expect from an artist who’s finest works are now housed in noted collections and museums throughout the world. This heavy quality okimono group is artist sealed Izumi Seijo iru (cast by Izumi Seijo ) to the base, and further inscribed Tokyo Kaneda Sei ( manufactured by Kaneda of Tokyo) to the edge of the base. A fine quality addition to your Japanese Okimono or metalwork collection.
