Object Description

From our collection of late 19th Century, Meiji-era Japanese metalwork, this wonderful Bronze Okimono group depicting a pair of Oni.

The two devils, grinning with excitement as they hold aloft a spherical rock crystal. Each Oni wearing animal print loin cloths. One a Tiger, the other a Leopard, (with the creatures face at the bottom of his shorts).

Both figures wear gilt bracelets on their feet and hands.

A wonderful example of Meiji-era craftsmanship and imagination.

Condition is excellent. Don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
