As part of our Japanese works of art collection we are delighted to offer this super quality slender mixed metal vase from the Meiji period 1868-1912, the main body of the vase is formed from Shibuichi , a Japanese alloy formed out of adding pure Silver to Bronze thus producing varying tones of grey brown , the neck of the vase is formed out of solid silver cleverly moulded with the main body to form a drizzled ice effect, the vase itself depicts various native Flora onlaid in Silver with mixed metal leaves and Gold Stamen , the onlaid decoration applied upon a Katakiri-bori carved lakeside setting, the vase is stood upon a solid Silver rim and impressed to the underside, as well as being artist signed to the rear , an increasingly scarce work from the metalworkers of the great Meiji period, the translation has proved difficult and possibly reads as follows :

The signature suggests that the artist might have been a student of???? Kano Natsuo (1828-1898) and Unno Shomin ???? (1845-1915) working in the Mito or Tokyo school styles of metal art, excelled at the katakiribori technique ???. It is possible that the work was created by two metal artists: Yumin and the other artist with Ko/Mitsu character name.

Provenance: Direct to ourselves from an overseas collection.
