Hello, I've got a pair of big bronze vases/scales on wooden pedestals, turnable , height in total around 2 meters, 2 traditional language chinese stamps, each suclpture has 2 stories to tell, and the scale on top is also different. They've told me that it was Japanese Meiji period, but the language on the marks tell differently.(Chinese translation looks like ;big, bamboo, spring, ? , ? ) + (pine,liking,? +?)
I would like to know if I've got museum quality or not. Some of the little dragons on the sides are damaged, they can be reproduced.The bigger pictures are almost complete (spear or flag missing). I've would like to know more about them and if they are worth restoring for a lot of money.
