This is a very unique Japanese cloisonne vase. It has two finely done cranes on a rock and then the rest of the vase has a very stylized waves and water done with silver wire. The vase has a is very refined look and has a high gloss black ground color. In hand the wire work is more subtle. In the images the wires stand out more due to the lighting. The vase appears to be made by Hayashi Tanigoro but there is no signature. The vase stands 10 inches tall. Condition is excellent and this vase is much better in person.
