Is this sweet little bronze guy a goner?
It's so dear, shaped so nicely, rings like a bell...but it's losing its inlay in several places...is it worthless? The only thing resembling maker's marks are on opposite sides of the bottom (see pic) -- they just look like rectangles that have been smushed over the years...any thoughts? There's no writing under the price tag, btw, despite what it looks like in the pics. It's hair. Sorry. I could take it over but I thought I'd get this posted and didn't realize what it looked like until seeing it in this preview. Can't find anything that looks similar searching under bronze inlay cup, bronze enamel cup, vintage bronze cup, antique bronze cup, antique bronze footed -- what am I missing? Researching these little things is honing my skills, and I really appreciate the help in my learning. TIA!
(oh, still no word on Little Yurito...and no progress on those red/yellow/blue plates/cups--I have to wait on Yurito, but I'm still trying myself on the ceramics)
