It is a lovely piece of art. Stands at 5 inches tall.
It has been crafted using Ginbari cloisonné with polychrome enamels on embossed foil and patinated copper. Together, these techniques and materials are what give it its translucent effect. And has a white lustrous ground.
There are 2 branches with foliage in different shades of green. There are also delicate purple flowers. This piece is in good condition, for an art piece that is close to 170 years old.
There is some minor hairline crazing, some chipping below the neck and on a couple flower petals, as well as, some darkening in the back of the vase. As such, there may be minor wear and tear, consistent with age and use. We do our best to carefully photograph items in their current condition, to show imperfections or damage, where applicable.
