- Love it!
- I had my eye on rain drums for 20 years and am fairly knowledgeable on the art, history and lost wax process. This is authentic. The picture is accurate and you need to look closely at the detail (Turtles, Koi, Water Buffalo and Cranes)Its hollow but very substantial. You can find cast aluminum replicates for 1/3 price however they lack a true patina. I use mine as a side table to a chair and plan on getting a glass top cut.
It was a delight to call ES. I had them fetch one from storage and measure it up to confirm my assumptions roughly (18.25"" x 12""). The product was shipped FEDEX Ground and arrived within 5 days. Packaging was substantial (I don't think you could put anymore "Fragile" labels on the box. Shipping is additional.
Its a conversation piece and an heirloom.
