As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this exceptional quality Meiji period 1868-1912 damascened iron vase by the highly regarded Komai company, the vase circa 1880 and carrying the full Komai signature is a fine example of the company’s earlier nunomezogan work, the main body of the vase depicts multiple roundels of Japanese scenes, flora, fishes, birds, butterflies and stylised mons between the more traditional grape and vine decoration to the base and lower shoulders, the neck has been superbly decorated with a display of inlaid gilt butterfly and moths between geometric bands, the top of the neck further decorated with grape and vine decoration below a finely executed geometric banded gilt rim, just about as good as you would expect to find an early Meiji period Komai vase of this type.
