This is a beautiful Japanese Meiji era (c. 1870-90's) ornate cloisonné vase. The hand crafted decorations are supremely detailed geometric designs with butterflies on a black background. 

Made of copper, copper alloys and vitreous glass enamel. 

This vase is approximately 7.5" tall by 3.5" in diameter (21.5 x 10 cm). 

It weighs about 1 pound.  Having been carefully displayed for nearly five decades since acquired by a dedicated local collector, it remains in fine condition with the exception of a hole that was made in the bottom. PLEASE NOTE the hole in the photos that was perhaps made to mount the vase to a base or use it as a lamp (priced accordingly).

This is a perfect example of Meiji era Japanese cloisonné. This is one of over 110 beautiful examples of this exquisite Japanese art currently being offered by Shogun's Gallery.
