Lacquered brass vase is black, stands 14" tall and is about 10" diameter. It has a beautiful inlaid design, obviously made by a master artist with greatly detailed flowers and a butterfly. Brass is seen on the bottom rim and the mouth of the vase, which is folded over to the inside - another sign that this piece is an older vase - not a new copy! Vase still retains part of the label on the base.
There is some loss of the shine on this piece, likely from the sun or just age. The brass has some build up inside the mouth of the vase and there is some crackling or cracks to the lacquer. All these are signs of it being an authentic vintage piece. It displays beautifully and really catches your eye with the abalone / mother of pearl inlay! A really beautiful piece of Korean art!
