Myochin Style Hiroyoshi Japanese Edo Articulated Metal Rock Lobster

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
Japanese Edo period articulated rock lobster made of copper, bronze and iron and signed 'Hiroyoshi' on the bottom. Made in the early 20th century (late Meiji/early Taisho period), the piece has articulated limbs, antennae, body and tail. A superb example of the Myochin style. The Myochins were a distinguished family of samurai armorers. As military conflict in Japan abated in the early 17th century and samurai warriors became courtiers, bureaucrats and administrators, the armorers were compelled to adapt their skills by making articulated sculptures like the present example, which are highly sought after by museums and collectors.
In great antique condition with age-appropriate wear and use.
