This pair of large Japanese cloisonné vases are from the Meiji period, circa 1880-1912. The rich turquoise colored background highlights the flora and fauna scene. The flowers, trailing vines and leaves surround the vases. Each has a bird perched on a branch in a slightly different position. Each also has a different butterfly alighting on a tiger lily. The enamel and cloisonné’ work is exquisite and the colors are intense. If you look closely you will see a slight .5” and 1” chip in the enameling. This is only noticeable upon very close examination and does not detract from its presence. 16.5" X 7"w X 7"d, Condition: Very Good, Circa: 1900.
