silver-mounted, ruby-red cloisonné vase
An out-sized silver-mounted, ruby-red cloisonné vase executed in basse taille technique. Under the gleaming surface, a marvelously etched and hammered dragon writhing through clouds encircles its body. This enormous, glistening vase conjures up imagery of a fabulous jewel. Height, 13"; diameter, 14". Meiji Period.
