As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to bring this rare, unusual and sensational quality Meiji Period 1868-1912 mixed metal hawk on stand in the form of a koro or incense burner, this very large and powerful study is fully artist signed and bears the seal of the highly regarded Maruki company, a Tokyo based company renowned for manufacturing higher quality okimono between 1870-1895. On this occasion the artist has captured a hawk perched upon its bronze stand, the stand cleverly formed to resemble a jointed rustic wooden perch upon which the hawk stoops head down and about to take flight. The detail to the hawk, and in particular its feather work is simply breathtaking, the eyes picked out in gilt and shakudo, the legs and razor sharp talons also in gilt and shakudo. The birds upper feathers are formed as a pierced copper lid that lifts off to reveal a silver lined interior, this void for the purpose of burning incense.

The underside of the tail feathers artist signed Mori Yukiasu within a silver seal, accompanied by the well known factory seal of the Maruki company . Quite simply a breathtaking and captivating sculptural okimono that would sit well in any higher quality Japanese works of art collection or a room setting of your choice.
