Pair of bronze and parcel-gilt figures depicting the legendary duo, Jo and Uba - Shigehiro signature
A pair of bronze and parcel-gilt figures depicting the legendary duo, Jo and Uba, modeled with infinite care: Jo, with her broom, sweeping away troubles and Uba, with rake, raking in good fortune. Their pleated and flowing garments incised with pine and gilt minogame and cranes lend intensity to the dark ground of the bronze. Silver Shigehiro signature plaques on rear of robes. Heights, 12" and 11.5" respectively. Meiji Period.
