19th century round Japanese kogo (covered box for incense during tea ceremony) made in cloisonné technique. Very simple elegant shape with decoration of variously shaped reserves on the background of scrolling vines. Very pleasant finish with original pitting, gilding to the rim, no chips, star cracks, loss of enamel or restoration. Early piece in terms of Japanese cloisonné, from the period of transition from Chinese to Japanese style. Diameter 2 3/8 inches. Part of a small East Coast kogo collection.
