I just know many of you have been patiently waiting for me to find an Akagi Shoten vase for you! A classic Japanese classic yusen shippo (with standard wire) cloisonné vase of flower blossoms by the Akagi Shoten workshop. The vase is finished in a glossy polish and is in excellent vintage condition without any major faults such as cracks, chips or hairlines or restorations. There is a light ding to the top rim, but it is nearly impossible to photograph.
The height of this vase is approximately 7.0 inches. The width of the vase is approximately 4.0 inches. For a very similar example of this flower design, refer to Japanese Cloisonne Enamel; A Private Collectors Notes and Reference Guide, by Gary Yoshino, page 148.
Specialists generally agree that less than 7. % of all Japanese cloisonne enamel works are marked or signed by their artist workshops. Also, the Akagi Shoten artist confidently utilized a golden-yellow background enamel that is known to clearly show any inconsistencies in the enamel after the firing process. The vase will be double boxed and packed with tremendous care.
