Meiji era Bronze Tiger Statue ??

Recommended Posts

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 

Carl

Hello Rich,

Thank you. 

 

I just found out the signature is Genryusai Seiya, if you have any infos about him and his works let me know please.

I saw one very much like this one at a fair - can't remember if it was signed

Some had polished the 'black' stuff off so it was shiny so didn't buy it

I hate to think how many years that took away

Can someone give me a rough estimate of this statue?

 

I can provide more photos if needed.

I mean, I try to find some that sold, but that goes between 300€ and 17k€ so I was looking for someone who have much more knowledge than me. 

 

Thank you for your answer.

I have a similar one, will get some pictures when I get home. The small research I did revealed many statues of this design were made, of varying quality.
