Subject:Bronze (Simple Gu-Shaped) Vase; likely Chinese
Posted By: Mike McCabe Thu, Feb 14, 2019 IP:

Here are a couple of pictures of a small (7.5" tall) bronze vase that I own. Any information is helpful: where the vase originated from (country and region); time period; artist name; and so on.
Thank you for your time, Mike

The vase was made by the Zōroku copper foundry in Kyoto, founded by the 1st generation Hata Zōroku (1823-90). In these days the 6th generation is continuing the business.
