Antique Art Nouveau Nippon Hand Painted Floral Gilt Moriage Handled Vase 1900-1910
Beautiful Art Nouveau style Nippon porcelain vase made in Japan in the early 1900s for the Western market. It was slip cast molded in a waisted cylindrical form w/ a short narrow neck & small lug handles. The decoration is fabulous boasting large flowers & foliage and raised vertical lines of rich gold gilt. It is 6 5/8 inches high & 3 5/8 inches across at the widest point near the bottom.
This was, as the mark on the bottom suggests, created at a Nippon porcelain factory by Japanese potters of the Nippon era, including those working at the company that became Noritake. These talented Japanese potters were trained in European styles & successfully used the techniques of the work of Limoges, Belleek and R.S. Prussia.
A unique application technique was moriage, in which clay was applied to a piece like icing on a cake, before being glazed or gilded, which is how this vase was decorated.
A very special, unique vase in excellent condition!
