Japanese Bronze Koi Decorated Vessel/Jardiniere. Good bronzes take on a patina over time that defies explanation. Some areas are brown, others gray, green, etc. The colors are arranged by Nature to splendid perfection. That describes the surface of this handsome vessel. Swimming koi surround the central sphere which is supported by a sturdy base. One caution, this vessel has no bottom, perhaps destroyed over time. It would be ideal to rig as a water feature, with water circulating into a reception pond. Or, merely enjoy it for the work of art that it is.... Age is difficult to discern, but the casting is impeccably smooth, with a couple gentle bruises here and there. It closely resembles antique pieces from the Shang Dynasty (China).
