Decorated with dragons and flowers, and set with a large cover and unusual twin handles, this large cloisonne enamel koro dates from the Meiji period in Japan, 1868-1912. During this time a large and highly skilled workforce ceased to be involved in the production of arms and armour, and instead turned its skills towards decorative objects. This koro, an incense burner, is one such item. It is decorated with a sumptuous array of delicately worked and beautifully arranged floral motifs, set around larger dragon images. The colours are wonderfully chosen and have kept their vibrancy, and the noticeable asymmetry and irregular nature of the final design and shape add to its charm and appeal. With its large size, the detail and skill involved in its decoration, and its fine condition, it is a wonderful example of Meiji period craftsmanship and artistry.
