Fine Pair of Meiji Period Japanese Bronze Vases With Applied Decoration c1880
This pair of vases are in excellent condition commensurate with age having a gorgeous antique patina. No damage or loses to the decoration. A very slight and minor difference in hue of patina in some areas between the two vases. Will be due to differences in original composition of the bronze alloy however not at all obvious when displayed and not detracting at all from their beauty. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
