A 19th century bronze trumpet vase with elephant mask handles to the stem.

This well proportioned vase has, over time, acquired a warm and mellow tone. Its smooth geometric forms and solid surface stand in stark contrast to the carved, anatomic and lively heads of the Kakiemon Elephants. In Japanese mythology (as, in fact, in Buddhism) the elephant serves as a symbol of strength and power of mind.
Essentially good with slight warping to rim
