Nippon Hand Painted Vase w/Chrysanthemum & Gold Enamel Decoration
This beautiful Nippon era vase is circa 1880-1890, as it is unmarked and therefore produced before the McKinley Tariff Act of 1891. Lovely corset-shaped body, curled decorative handles, flared-out top and base. Both sides are adorned with gilt framed cartouches containing hand painted pink and rose chrysanthemum flowers with accenting shaded green leaves. The background color of the vase is a soft robin-egg blue covered with delicate gilt lattice work and hundreds of raised gilt enameled dots. The flared base are embossed lotus flower leaves with curled blue centers. The craftsmanship is fantastic. The vase measures 9" in height and 6 1/4" from handle-to-handle. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some minor wear on handles and most noticeable wear is in on the gild decoration inside of the top opening; paint flake on one flower. A wonderful, early piece of Nippon.
