The challenge with any antique cloisonne pieces is to find the ones without damage. For every piece that we examine, we turn away twenty. Only the select few are in the best shape for our standards. This old cloisonne vase is completely hand made and would date to about 1900. Marked China, it was an export piece that was made for the western market, but didn't sacrifice the traditional Chinese style. Pretty colors and pattern. We found a vintage vase that is a good match, but keep in mind the base is not nearly as old as the vase itself. The vase alone measures 9 and 1/2 inches tall - a good sized vase!. A very nice example. Note: these old pieces of cloisonne have various irregularities and quirks due to being hand made. This piece has no dents, damage or losses!
