Fine Japanese Cloisonne Teapot attr.Namikawa Yasuyuki

Featuring a superior Meiji Japanese cloisonne enamel sake or tea pot with intricate wire work attributed to Namikawa Yasuyuki, dating c. 1890. Probably an imperial piece/gift with the 16 petaled stylized kiku( chrysanthemums, the mon(crest) of the emperor). Measures 5.5" in diameter from tip of spout x 2" high without handle. With handle, measures about 6" high. All enamel in excellent condition. There is a small dent in the brass edge of the cover(see photo with view looking down from the top side on cover) that ripples into the underside of the brass cover. The underside looks worse in the photo than in person. There is a tiny gap between the edge of the enamel and the brass on the cover, a fraction of a millimeter wide which is about 3" long, see photo. The handle has been replaced and the finial on the cover may have been replaced. Never-the-less, even with these minor flaws, this is a rare and outstanding example of the finest cloisonne workmanship, at a reasonable price. It is fairly safe to attribute this teapot to the Japanese master of cloisonne making, Namikawa Yasuyuki. Return privilege providing item returned in sent condition, within 3 days of receipt, and the way it was packed. Sales tax charged if sold in NY state unless valid resale tax number and signed form provided.
