Often mistakenly referred to as a Pekinese, the Japanese Chin is a toy Spaniel breed associated with Japanese nobility.  This fine example in bronze has been beautifully patinated with shakudo eye detailing (an alloy of copper and gold).

It bears on its underside a seal that reads ‘Genryusai Seiya zo’ ('made by Genryusai Seiya', a highly regarded Tokyo School sculptor producing quality figures of animals and scenes depicting Japanese life).

Circa 1880.

Meiji Period (1868-1912).

14cm tall, 27cm wide.
