Hello to everyone,
This is my first post on subjects other than Japanese swords and I am really devoid of knowledge about this kind of art.
So: Here is a bronze tiger statue I have, I bought it years ago. I was told it is called a "double patina" statue and It is from meiji era.
It is also "signed", I have already seen this signature on other statues but also, as I am not Japanese speaker, I can't find anything on google.
It measures 45,5 cm (17,71654 inches) from the tail to the head and 20,5 cm (7,874016 inches) of heigt (from the front paw to the nose)
I would love if you guys tell me what's the real value of this and would really appreciate to know some history about the maker and this type of statue.
I am sorry if it is not the right category to talk about this.
Thank you really much
