Koro or incense burner in the form of a seated mastiff puppy, of cast and cold chiseled akaganebronze. An inscription chiseled on the reverse reads: Oba Zenjiro Yoshitsugu Saku or Made by Oba Zenjiro Yoshitsugu. Early Edo Period, 17th century.
This incense burner is modeled after a kara inu or foreign dog popular among the upper classes at the beginning of the 17th century.
