Japanese silvered bronze pair of Manchurian cranes (tancho-zuru) signed with chiselled characters on a gilt oval plaque Hidenao 秀尚 (Shusho), Meiji Period.

In Japan the crane is an auspicious symbol of long life because of its fabled life span of a thousand years, luck and fidelity as cranes pair for life.
