Fine large 19th century Japanese bronze vase/urn, c1870. Standing on raised tripod supports with stylised Elephant mask/mythical creature handles it has a lovely flowing form. It is beautifully decorated to one side of the body with a simple seascape depicting a boat, trees, foliage, cliffs.
The bronze has taken on great colour/patina following many years of use. Overall condition is good with small areas of wear/rubbing, but all very minor and as you would expect from an example of this age.

About me: I have been a passionate collector of antiques and collectables for over 30 years.
My tastes are diverse and range from fine antique furniture, African, Indian and Asian ethnographic antiques and tribal art, to vintage slot machines - the more unusual and curious the better! I have travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, India, North America and much of my collection has been sourced in the Country of origin. After many years of collecting I decided to start to sell and have established'Curious Antiques' which specialises in a range of fine and more unusual antiques.
These include fine furniture, religious items, militaria, amusement machines and one of the Countries best collections of African, Chinese, Eastern and Indian tribal and ethnographic antiques. I value your custom and will do all I can to keep you happy and satisfied.
