|A Japanese cloisonné tall slender bud vase with a design of a flowering bush - a tulip magnolia tree - against a navy blue ground. The tulip magnolia or Lily magnolia, is a small tree native to southwest China (Sichuan, Yunnan), but cultivated for centuries elsewhere in China and also Japan. It was first introduced to English-speaking countries from cultivated Japanese origins, and is thus also sometimes called "Japanese magnolia", though it is not native to Japan. The vase is in excellent condition. Dates from the Golden Age of Japanese Cloisonne, 1880-1895. Not signed. Measures 6" tall – the top is 3/4" diameter – the widest part at the waist is 2 3/8' diameter and the base is 1 1/2" diameter.|
