Oshima Joun, ????, 1858-1940, is a famous bronzier of the Meiji era. He has made a number of bronze pieces, vases and incense burner, always very sought after for their finesse and quality of execution. The frog fight was made in few copies and mostly in silver. This model is rare because also in silver but in addition with a golden patina. Very realistic we see precisely the effort of each wrestler trying to destabilize the other.
