A fabulous Japanese cloisonne vase purchased from the 1893 Chicago Exhibition. Inside the vase is an old decaying leaflet given to the buyers by the exhibitors. On a fragment one of the massive vases displayed by Suzuki can be seen on this paper (See image). There is more to this faded image on the reverse buy it is hard to see. The vase is one of the well known vases with the eagle finial. Every one of the Suziki pieces was approved by the Emperor for this exhibition. This vase is special. It was made with great skill and has glowing thick Namikawa like enamels. It was probably made by Honda who was part of the Suzuki company at that time. The vase stands 12 inches tall and is in nearly perfect condition.
