A Japanese cloisonne enamel vase by Ando Jubei (1876-1953), Meiji period vase. An early-mid 20th century enamel worked with a very subdued floral scrolling design. The body of the vase is a highly transparent and polished sea green and the design is a lighter green. The color was likely intended to approximate jade.
The top appears to be a silver mount and the base is copper. The vase has the stylized four petal mark of Ando Jubei on the base in cloisonne. The base is glazed with the green enamel but this base enamel is not polished.
9 5/8” (24.4 cm) tall x 5” (12.7 cm) diameter. Weighs 2 lbs 13.4 oz (1285 g)
There is a dent on the mouth rim and subsequent cracking and crazing of the enamel around this dent and down to the shoulder. There are a few tiny enamel chips under the dent at the mouth. There is slight crazing along the foot ring the must have been caused by setting the vase down. The body shows very slight wear marks.
A very simple, colorful, large vase to decorate with. It would look great in a mid-century décor.
