A fabulous Art-Deco inspired koro of three bronze parts by Aida Tomiyasu enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Shishi-botan-zo Seido Koro. It is roughly 13 cm (5 inches) diameter, 20 cm (8 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
Aida Tomiyasu (Ihara Meijiro 1901-1987) was born in Tateyama, Chiba Prefecture and learned his trade under Yamamoto Azumi. In his early years he exhibited with the Nihon Bijutsu Kyokai and Shokosho Kogeiten exhibitions. In 1942 he joined the Kosaikai art research society, eventually serving as its chairman. Post-War he would become an active member of the Nitten National Exhibition, ultimately serving as a juror and director.
