The vase was crafted in Japan in the Meiji period (1868-1912). Often referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of cloisonné production, the Meiji period saw the creation of beautiful, large enamelled works, like this vase. Such items were highly sought-after, not only in Japan but also in Europe, which the country had recently opened up to trade with.
This large vase is displayed on a lacquered wooden plinth, which is intricately decorated with scrolling, foliate patterns, and which rests on stylised, curved feet. The vase features an ovoid body, with a tall narrow neck and flared rim. The vase is decorated with enamelled depictions of white and pink peony flowers, blossoming from leafy green stems. These have been intricately portrayed, so that every petal and leaf is clearly delineated. The base and lip of the vase are encircled by gilt bands.
Vase: Height 148cm, diameter 52cm
Stand: Height 23cm, diameter 40cm
