Subject:JAPANESE BRONZE FISHERMAN
Posted By: Dugald McDonald Mon, Sep 18, 2017 IP: 105.184.50.222

I would like to identify this bronze Japanese fisherman that stands a bit over 12 cm high. It was a gift from my grandmother and I've had it for more than 30 years. I'm not sure how long she had it, or where the figurine came from. I have lived in Johannesburg, South Africa since 1992. The figurine came here with me from Sydney, Australia. Your assistance would be much appreciated.

This is a patinated bronze okimono of a standing fisherman, signed 'Toyohisa' (豊壽), made for export ca early 1900s (late Meiji era).

Hey Guy,
Thank you very much for getting back to me. I really appreciate it. I'm thinking about selling the figurine. Is it valuable? Would you have any idea of its value?. Once again. Thank you. D
