Object Description
Cylindrical form Japanese cloisonné vase with applied gilt rims on the lips and base. Thin wires form a design of wisteria vines colored in blue, red, pink, white and green enamels over a mauve ground. Delicate shading with the enamels creates a painterly, three-dimensional effect. Semi-circular geometric motifs run along the base and circular geometric motifs run under the rim. The counter-enamel on the inside of the lip is the same mauve ground color. There is a hole drilled through the bottom of the vase. The base of the vase is engraved with the mark of the Inaba Cloisonne Company, which was founded in 1886 by Inaba Isshin during the “Golden Age” of Japanese cloisonné.
