Offering a vintage Japanese, lace cloisonne, 4" bowl plate with carved wood stand. This form of Japanese cloisonne is called Shotai Shippo.
This Plique a Jour cloisonne style is like a small stained glass window when held up to the light. The glass and enamel are held together only with the fine metal strands of the woven pattern and the effect is stunning and delicate.
The small dish with scalloped rim measures 4" in diameter. I am not sure whether to call this a plate or a bowl because the sides are lifted to form a shallow cup.
The wood stand was carved to specifically fit the scalloped edge of the plate. It measures 4 1/2" across and is 3 1/2" in height.
The small dish and it's stand are in excellent condition with no damage.
