Japanese Meiji Period Cloisonné Enamel Plate Cranes -


An attractive Japanese cloisonné enamel plate, dating from the late Meiji Period (1868-1912).

The plate depicts a pair of cranes: one standing, the other in flight. They are surrounded by dense foliage, with lilies, chrysanthemums, peonies and camellia. The plate is finished with a tight border of scrolling geometric patterns.

The condition of the plate is very good, with only some minor stress cracks and firing flaws to the background enamel.
