Lot 0010 Details

  • Title: Large Japanese Showa Yellow Cloisonné Vase
  • Size: 7 ¾” (19.7 cm) diameter x 7 3/8” (18.7 cm) tall.

    A large colorful, detailed, artistic globular Japanese cloisonné vase that shows a phoenix in flight with its feathers floating in the air. The base color is yellow with wire spaces filled in with colored enamels to form the design of a phoenix in flight. The design is very Japanese with feathers flowing like a robe. The enamels are bright, colorful, and have good shading. The brass wires add a touch of shine to the design. The rim and base are a silver colored metal which is bright and shiny. It doesn’t look like it tarnishes and so I don’t think it is silver. The interior is enameled with a drippy lined pattern. There is the mark MADE IN JAPAN on the base metal rim. MEASUREMENTS 7 ¾” (19.7 cm) diameter x 7 3/8” (18.7 cm) tall. Weighs 4 lbs 3 oz (1900 g) CONDITION There are no cracks, chips, or breaks on the vase. There is slight wear to the rim and base from use. It is heavy and when moved for years it shows wear on the base metal rim. An incredible work of Japanese art. The colors draw the eye in. It is almost hypnotic.
