Japanese Bronze Okimono of an Elderly Man with Goat | Meiji Period



Japanese, circa late 19th century

An Elderly Man and His Goat

Patinated bronze | signed in reverse of cast

Item # 302KPW14Q 

An exquisitely cast and chiseled Meiji period bronze okimono of an elderly man seated on a tree stump while showing love to his pet goat. In his other hand he loosely holds a naturalistic carved staff. Note the very fine engraving of each individual hair on his head, the fine hammered texturing of his beard and the stippled detail of his shoes. He is situated over a naturalistic ground that is intricately cast in several parts but fits together with crisp precision. It is signed in raised relief to the reverse.

Measurements: 15 1/8" H (to tip of staff) x 9 7/8" D x 13 1/8" W

Exquisite original condition. No observed flaws.
