An attractive Japanese cloisonne vase of a Chinese shape, decorated in yusen, shosen and musen enamels in the style of classical Chinese painting, with a rural scene amongst mountains, Showa, 9.5 inches. 24.5 cms high.
A similar design is found on an Ando vase, attributed to the Taisho era and illustrated in Irvine 'Japanese Cloisonne' page 56, where it is suggested that it may have been made by a Mr Okamura. There are also a pair of similarly decorated vases in the Shosenkyo Ropeway Cloisonne Art Museum in Kofu. (cf. 1994 exhibition catalogue pp. 18-19.
The present vase has had a repair made to the base, probably to fill a hole for electricity, and no mark is visible.
