Item:3122179568090941 Japanese Bronze Elephant Description A 19th century Japanese Meiji period bronze elephant. It is a very detailed rendering with skin wrinkles and folds around the eyes. It is depicted with trunk raised and legs in a strident gait. It is hollow cast, but still heavy so quite a thick walled example. To one of the feet is a Kanji mark, possibly a stylised mark for Japan, although the second character may refer to ice, or a family name. It comes with an ebonised wooden stand with carved ends, this may or may not be related but does appear of the same period as the bronze. A fine looking example. Condition Elephant has a stress crack through the trunk (pictured), fortunately to the reverse as normally displayed. Minor period wear. Some aging to the tusks, and tusks appear re-glued into the sockets.
