Subject:BRONZE Japanese Daruma? Please help!
Posted By: Frank Wed, Mar 07, 2018 IP: 2601:183:4480:217:24

I recently purchased this bronze sculpture at an estate sale and am trying to identify its origins. I believe it is weighted with sand (very heavy and when I shake it I can hear what appears to be sand). Dimensions 9 1/2 Inches x 4 Inches x 3 3/4 Inches and weighs 4 LBS 8 OZ. The bottom of the piece is inscribed with Asian script....any translation or identification would be greatly appreciated! | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
