Vintage Japanese Brass Figure - 'Crane on a Tortoise'

  • Gorgeous decorative brass figurine of a crane standing on top of a turtle or tortoise.  This would look wonderful on a side table, bookcase or #shelfie

    In Japan the crane represents good fortune and longevity and the turtle is a symbol for wisdom, luck, protection, and longevity due to their long lifespan and slow movement.
