As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this most charming Meiji Period 1868-1912, pure silver and mixed metal sculptural okimono depicting a pair of Manchurian cranes stood upon a naturalistic wooden base, the base resembling a muddy lakeside bank The unknown artist has captured these beautiful birds in a natural pose with plenty of movement, one bird seemingly preening its feathers as the companion looks on, the solid cast silver bodies are finely carved and further detailed with shakudo tail feathers and neck areas, shibuichi legs and bright red caps to the crown and finely gilt eye detailing bringing these birds to life. A most delightful pure silver and mixed metal sculptural group by a highly skilled Meiji period artist, likely Hassegawa Issei or Hidenao.
