Circa 1850-1875 Japanese Meiji Period Mixed Metal Vase measuring 17 1/2" in height. The texture of this vase is just like the trunk of a tree and this is actually called the Tree Bark Pattern and Design. I have been told this is Japanese Lacquer on top of Satsuma. The Cloisonne along with the mixed metals have been applied to is probably pottery, earthenware or porcelain. Cloisonne design of flowers,butterflies,birds are inlaid into the lacquering. It appears to be a hammered black rippled body embossed with a central tree bearing bark and orange flowers maybe mums with a black and orange bird (Oriole) nestled in between. JUST A REAL BLACK BEAUTY. I have been told that this pattern is very rarely seen and not too many people are knowledgeable(Including Myself)in regards to this piece. The minute I looked at it,I knew it was something that was quite unusual and a process that I had never seen. I feel that I have Priced it at a Very Reasonable Price.
