Miniature Japanese cloisonné teapot Meiji Period
Elaborate ornate miniature cloisonné Japanese teapot that has colors and glitter. Base brass metal that has been overlayed with enamels in brass wire. The design is elaborate with colored panels that are separated by blue circular ropes of enamel. There are flowers, butterflies, and a blue base. The underside is not enameled. The inside is enameled in blue.

The teapot lid is very elaborate with a brass chrysanthemum finial. The lid underside is enameled in blue.

The enamels have a nice feel. From the Meiji Period circa 1900.

MEASUREMENTS : 3 ¼ diameter x 2 ¼ tall. 5 ¼ long from tip of spout to tip of handle.
