This is an attractive Japanese cloisonne vase from a rarely seen artist, Hayashi Chuzo. It was acquired from the now deceased great antiques dealer, Joe Belperio. The vase features a flock of 13 finely rendered rock doves or pigeons. The vase stands 7 inches tall. In the last image a sliver/chip can be seen in the blown up image. It is not easy to notice and there are also several very faint lines. Even so it is still a great display piece from a fine artist.
