With a soft celadon green background, this cloisonne vase is beautifully decorated with two large orchid blossoms, green leaves and stems. The shading of coloration in the blossoms and foliage is subtle and finely executed, and the wire utilized is especially fine, creating a fresh and life-like composition. Measuring 9 3/4' high, and 5 1/4" wide, the size is impressive, and the vase is signed with inlaid wire on the base. In mint condition, with no scratches, pitting or other marring of the surface (slight wear on metal base at bottom). This is an exceptionally fine cloisonne vase, demonstrating the highest quality of Meiji and Ando workmanship.
