Superb highly detailed hand carved Japanese wall bracket of the Meiji period/late 19th Century. This is a very rare quality work of art done by a master carver. The wall bracket features an owl with stunning details, perched ready for flight. The top of the shelf is carved with foliage giving it a great touch.
Most tops are generally plain. And will display very well at eye level as also from higher up. It is a true quality Japanese work of art dating to the late 19th century.This is a great addition to any collection. In very good overall condition.
The top, back of the shelf and the owl are all good, Though has some small losses/old repair below the branch perched on and leaf... All nothing major, but noted and does not detract in any way. Very sturdy, ready to hang. The wood could be mahogany or boxwood not 100% sure. Has original redish lacquer waxed finish.Has a great patina with usual very minor marks/scuffs etc commensurate with age and use. Will display well in any period, contemporary setting.
