We're thrilled to present this gorgeous vintage sterling vase. From Hirohito era Japan, the vase is a perfect example of the purely aesthetic value of Art Deco design.
The six-sided vase sits on a wide, tapering foot. The piece remains completely unadorned except for a small band featuring a stamped repeating diamond pattern around the upper edge.
Highly architectural and conservative adornment is a traditional characteristic of Hirohito period Japanese silver.
The underside of the foot is lined with soft green felt with a 4mm exposed edge.
This edge exhibits two impressed hallmarks which read "Miyamoto Tokyo" and "Sterling".
On one side below the decorative band at the top of the vase is a minuscule die-stamped mark with the company's hallmark, which looks like a crane within a tiny circle.
This has a weighted bottom so the vase is sound and not easily tipped. Quite an ingenious design, don't you think?
Though the vase exhibits some minor surface wear, we are pleased to say that it is still in great vintage condition. It is bright and shining.
