A fabulous hand formed bronze vase with Uchidashi Namazu (hammer-formed catfish) breaking the surface of the water, the grinning bulbous head on one side, the tale swishing out opposite. It has a solid silver rim and gold eyes. Beneath the dark patination lies a deep golden glow. Everything about this is absolute quality. It is 8 inches (20.5 cm) tall and in excellent condition dating from the first half of the 20th century.
