Finely detailed five multi colored pigeons fly around entire vase in fine silver wire in various forms are exquisite. Finely shaped avoid body with soft yellow ground.
Neck and base has beautiful finely detailed border work in many colors. At some point, these details went away. Not this one, just a great early Meiji vase. This vase exhibits very high standard of fine Japanese hand craftsmanship. I estimate from the early Meiji Period.
The cloison detail work in silver wire is outstanding and was certainly performed by a master of Japanese cloisonne. This antique vase is in excellent original condition. No cracks, repairs, or dents. I don't see any flaws. Approximate size is 5 tall.
Please see photos as an integral part of this description. Sometimes the camera catches what I don't. From my own personal collection, this fine vase would be an excellent addition to your own cloisonne collection.
All serious, reasonable offers considered. Please check my other auctions.
