As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this fantastic quality Meiji Period 1868-1912 , bronze Okimono by the well recorded artist Atsuyoshi working for the highly acclaimed Maruki company , the artist has captured a magical study of a Toad catcher carrying a huge and completely out of scale Toad that is tethered to his back , he is startled by a Sand Lizard and looses his Sandal in the process of jumping out of the way , the movement and attention to detail are so well captured , and as with many Japanese Okimono , with such great humour , Maruki company Okimono tend to stand out in terms of weight , quality and fineness of casting , this one certainly does not disappoint and is instantly recognisable to the trained Eye , artist signed by Atsuyoshi in an oval reserve above the Maruki company seal , a great addition to your Okimono or Japanese works of art collection .
