Product Description

A beautifully-made cloisonné vase, hailing from Japan and dating from the late Meiji Period (1868-1912)

In the Kyoto style, with alternating shields of phoenixes and dragons, the vase is decorated with symmetrical patterns and brocaded borders. At times the pattern is impossibly meticulous, and if not for the missing section of enamel, would comprise some of the highest workmanship of the Meiji Period.

Certain other features attest to the vases quality: the unusually slender bottle form is as elegant as it is vulnerable. The use of silver and gold wires as well as the white metal fittings suggest that the vase was produced without compromise.

Though little is known of Ota Hyozo, his workshop has left behind some pieces of outstanding quality. He exhibited at the St Louis Universal Exposition of 1904, but had the misfortune of sharing a name with many other exceptional enamellists. They therefore seem to exist as a collective, with history diffusing credit between the many Otas who worked during this fertile artistic period.

The condition of the vase is very good, aside from a missing section of enamel to the turquoise shield.
