A striking pair of Japanese multimetal vases decorated with lively scenes of sparrows in a multicolour bamboo forest, the bright golds, coppers and red of the bamboo contrast against the black and create a dramatic and eye-catching backdrop for the birds at play. The top, bottom and ears are decorated with a geometric inlaid design the feet of the vases are in the form of butterflies.

Brought from a Highgate Butcher in 1914-18. Apparently the vases were given to the Red Cross Raffle by a well to do land owner who lived in the Thames Valley and were subsequently won by the Highgate Butcher. Brought by Herbert Collins. Passed to Alf Aird (nephew) who owned Valiant Sailor, top of Dover Hill, Folkstone, then passed to son William who died in 1975.
