Antique Japanese bronze crane standing on a turtle statue to hold a candle or taper.
Beautifully modelled and very impressive, the turtle is from a fable and has stood still so long that weeds are growing from its shell. The turtle holds a lily frond in its beak.
The detailing of individual feathers and plumage id just stunning.
Nicely patinated, very old and in really great condition.
