A very interesting pair of great cloisonne art deco vases - the combination of ginbari and standard cloisonne is in a pattern that very much resembles a peacock feather - one of the classic art deco motifs. Both are 5" tall and 2 1/2" diameter at the waist - tapering to 1 3/8" diameter at the foot.

A striking dark cobalt blue - almost midnight blue - ground standard cloisonne vase with three superbly detailed birds as the design. The three pigeons and the two flowers with leaves all appear to be outlined in silver wire - usually the mark of Ota, a master Meiji era cloisonne artist. However, it is not signed so a clear attribution cannot be made.

The vase stands 4 5/8" tall and is 2" diameter at the widest part - the top is 3/4" diameter and the base is 1" diameter...

This is a very unusual kogo in that it is the shape of the hammer(mallet)carried by Daikoku, one of the Seven Household Goods in Japan.

The kogo measures 2 /3/4 " high by 3" diameter at waist by 4" from tips of the two handles. The top of the kogo is 2 1/2" diameter and the base is 2" diameter...

This pretty vase measures 5"high by 2 5/8"diameter at the shoulder - the top is 1"diameter and the base is 1 1/4"diameter. The pink and silver tulips are done in the gin-bari technique - with vivid green leaves highlighting the flowers. The flowers are done of a dark black ground with very tight cloisons. This is indicative of the dating to the early to mid Meiji period, circa 1980s. At that time, cloisonné artists had not yet mastered the art of large areas of the design in a pure solid color....

This cloisonné vase has a very subtle and unusual background color. It can best be described as a cross between a dove gray – fawn – and very light celadon. It is the only cloisonné item we have ever seen in this color. The vase is then highlighted with sprays of small white daisy-like with green leaves and stems. The contrast makes a lovely combination that gives this base special charm.

The vase measures 6” high – top is 1 5/8” diameter – shoulder is 2 ¾” diameter a...

This is a charming small cloisonné perfume bottle with an ivory threaded stopper. We believe it to be of Chinese origin because of the style of the cloisonné design. The design is that of tightly coiled cloisons with several different colored flowers - pink, yellow, white, red and orange. The design is executed on a ground color of pale blue enamel.

Along the sides of the bottle are three bronze loops – three per side - into which a gold chain would be threaded to make the bottle a...

This fine early Japanese cloisonne round covered box (kogo) is 3" wide and 2" high. It has a lovely design of flowers and butterflies.It is in excellent condition - exterior is fine, all the gilding around the rim has worn off leaving only the copper. The rim on the bottom half has many small bends and there is a chip to the inside of the lid as shown. No mark. I date this one from the early Meiji period circa 1870's. This dating can be confirmed by the many tiny pinholes in the piece which was...
