As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this most charming Meiji period 1868-1912 , Cloisonne enamel koro, this delightful squat vessel stands upon three enameled feet, the main body decorated with a flight of sea birds worked in traditional silver wire technique upon a translucent (Tomei) enamel ground, the translucent enamel graduated in color and representing crashing waves to great effect, a style of work also generically known as tsuiki-jippo, the silver lined body is fitted with a woven silver lid for the purpose of escaping incense, a magical example of this technique in outstanding condition.
The most prominent artist perfecting this technique in the latter Meiji period circa 1900-1910 would have been Kumeno Teitaro 1865-1939 as such we can attribute this piece to him with some degree of confidence.
