As part of our Japanese art collection we are delighted to offer this most charming study of a pair of Oshidori (Mandarin ducks) upon a rocky outcrop beside a stream , the ducks themselves are cast from solid silver with the feather detailing multi patinated in gold and shakudo to a very fine standard ,even the ducks tiny eyes are picked out in gold and shakudo, the pair stand upon a multi coloured bronze landscape beside a silvered flowing stream ,Oshidori are very loyal birds highly revered in Japan and seen as a sign of lifelong companionship, he appears to be protecting her as she ventures towards the waters edge, an absolutely delightful Japanese okimono from the late Meiji period.

The condition is excellent
