I have a heavy bronze vase that has an inscription on the inside bottom, but I am not sure if it is of Chinese or Japanese origin to even begin to identify it. Any help with it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Katie

puckered paper repair

I found this plaque today and immediately assumed it was a modern reproduction of a plaque that commemorated the 50th anniversary of Chopin's death at a young age of 39. Upon closer inspections I am beginning to think this plaque may actually be over 115 years old. It measures 10.75" in diameter and weighs 5 pounds!

 

It appears to have been hand made and fabricated possibly by the lost wax method of sculpture. The are multiple example of the numbers 1, 8, and 9, all of which are slightly different and not machine stamped which would make them identical...I think.

 

I have researched a bit and can find coin sized medallions (that commemorate Chopin) up to 3" large but cannot find an example as large as the one I found. I can not see any OBVIOUS artist signatures but can see very faint lettering intermingled with the dappled background. My eyes might be playing tricks on me but I DO see letters and words when held in certain light. I tried to show this in the third photo.

 

Are there any bronze sculpture experts out there that may be able to offer me some insight?
