This is a very fine and rare early Namikawa Japanese Cloisonne Vase. THOUGH NOT SIGNED WE FEEL THIS VASE IS THE WORK OF NAMIKAWA. The vase is aprrox. 5" tall. The panel with the mums has a couple of stress cracks around 3:00 on the blue panel. The panel with the wonderful blue flowers and long leaves has stress cracks over the top half of the panel. This panel also has a couple of small and shallow surface chips. Both panels have some scratches. Brown back round has a couple of very small nicks. Base has scratches and a dent and most of the brass plate has come off to expose the copper. Vase does not wobble when standing. Vase has pitting. ALL OF THE ABOVE CAN CLEARLY BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS.
