Japanese bronze vases, high relief birds and flowers, Yoshida workshop

Hello all,

I have a pair of high relief bronze (I think) vases that upon further research are Japanese from the late 1800s, made in Yoshida workshop in Kyoto.

Please see the pictures.

Natural patina; in some places metal has aged away and there're a few pinholes.

There're marks on the bottoms, appear to be the same or similar. Each vase stands about 9.5" tall.

I would appreciate some guidance as to the value of these vases.
