A characterful Bronze Okimono pair of figures by Miyao (Japanese, late 19th Century)

A wonderful example of the detailed and imaginative work of the Miyao Company, this delightful pair of Bronze figures depict two workers enjoying a moment of rest. One man holds a pipe in his mouth and appears to be filling/lighting its contents. Another man,  holds a broom in one hand and in the other, he holds aloft a bird house in the form of a lantern and a sparrow sits on top. He looks to be delighted.

Both men wear robes adorned with emblems and butterflies. Offered in good condition and both bear the Miyao mark in a gold tablet.
