Totai-Shippo Cloisonne on Porcelain Tall Vase - Meiji Period, Japan
Stunning Totai-shippo Japanese cloisonne vase decorated with a wonderfully rendered bird perched on a branch amidst iris flowers, buds and foliage in muted shades of brown, green and red. The neck and bottom of the vase have a geometric motif. Totai-shippo is an enamel on porcelain, ceramic or earthenware cloisonne technique also referred to as Jiki-Shippo or Tree-Bark cloisonne. Similar to metal base cloisonne, Totai -Shippo cloisonee consists of affixing flat copper wire in a decorative pattern to, in this case, a ceramic piece. The resulting sections are then filled with the different color enamels. This technique was used for a short time due to the difficulty of making pieces that were not damaged during manufacture. Unmarked which is typical of Jiki-shippo cloisonne pieces. Overall good condition, with small blemishes and touch ups to neck underside, and firing cracks to underside from the time of manufacture as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
