Product Description

An unusual Japanese cloisonné plate, dating from the early twentieth century, around the middle of the Meiji era.

The plate, pleasing in its simplicity, depicts a stylised grey hawk soaring through blue sky. The edge of the plate is bordered with tessellating rectangles of varying colours.

The plate is characteristic of a time, where advances in chemistry allowed large areas of enamel to be anchored to the vessel without the need for continuous wire compartments. Techniques that were to influence a wider shift in style, where tight patterns were replaced by simple representations of the natural world.

The condition of the plate is largely very good, with only slight wear to the back, where some of the enamel is missing.
