Product Description

An extremely fine and large example of early Japanese Cloisonné dating from the mid 19th century.

It is decorated in fine geometric patterns and colours, with a Phoenix bird in the middle. Unlike later more delicate cloisonné, it has a more subdued look, when compared to Chinese or more modern Japanese examples. The enamelling is set on a heavy bronze dish base and in a style that is influenced by Chinese cloisonné of the Ming Dynasty. Condition is very good, with only slight wear and without any apparent damage, which is rare for its age.

Japanese Cloisonné production began around 1833 when the Samurai, Kaji Tsunekichi of Nagoya was forced - due to the obsolescence of the Samurai in modern Japan - to take up a trade. A long-term admirer of Chinese Cloisonné, it is believed that he examined one of his own pieces, took it apart and by studying its construction was able to produce a small cloisonné dish.
