Japanese Cloisonne Koro Pine Bamboo Plum by Mori Mikio
sold

Handsome incense burner in nearly cylindrical shape resting on three small feet, made with silver wire and colored opaque enamels, by Mori Mikio from Ando Cloisonne workshop. It is decorated, on a light brown ground mottled with particles of diverse colors, with stylized designs of pine, bamboo and plum (”sho chiku bai”, symbolizing long life, hardiness and vitality) in panels on each of the three sides, that resemble Japanese family crests. The same design, forming a circle, can be seen on the pierced cover of the koro. The interior and mouting are in pure silver (”silver” stamps on the base and cover mounts).
Mori Mikio (born 1945) is working for the Ando Cloisonne workshop since he graduated from a technical school, in 1965. He specializes there in the silver framework of the cloisonne pieces. This beautiful koro is one of his personal works, that was selected for the 39th Tokai Traditional Art Crafts Exhibition, in 2008.
The koro is in excellent condition, with no damage to mention, only very light scratches to the silver. It bears the mark of the artist under the base. It comes in its original signed kiri box, with an inscription testifying to its participation in the exhibition, a picture of the item at the exhibition and a small pedestal. Dimensions: 13 cm (5.1 in) high and 9 cm (3.5 in) in diameter
