A fabulous bronze vase intimating an archaic Chinese form of splashed gold with ancient patina signed on the base Hyakusei. This is created by applying the patina thickly over the polished yellow bronze. It dates from the late 19th to early 20th century, the heyday of the Japanese Sencha Tea movement when there was a great deal of interest in Sino-art. It is 18 cm (7 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
