Details

A large Japanese bronze bat vase. The vase with a central misty moon cast into the neck of the vase and flanked by a pair of large side handles in the form of bats. The bat (koumori) is a symbol of good fortune, an auspicious symbol adopted from China where the words for "bat" and "good fortune" are homophones. The moon is similarly auspicious and is often associated with longevity, the two together forming a rebus wishing the viewer good fortune and a long life. 
Meiji Period (1868-1912)
