Purchased in 2012 as bronze plate, a small amount of surface oxidation could be seen.
Could I ask for clarification of maker and smith please and an idea of the condition of the heron or is it an egret ?
Other than the amount of damage to the bird- (flattened body, marked beak), the rest looks O.K to such as me ?
80 x 75 x 4.6 at rim Masamune the maker I think ?
thanks in anticipation
