Top Quality 19c Antique Japanese Qing Period Bronze Cloisonne Vase
Lovely and beautifully made piece. With a stunning scene
Originally part of the Catherina collection of Japanese bronzes and cloisonne
that was partly auctioned in Amsterdam in 2006 at Sothebys. Some pieces are
pictured in the catalogue of the collection from an Exhibition on Japanese and
Chinese Cloisonne in the Princessenhof Museum in 1992.
Cloisonné is a way of enamelling an object, (typically made of copper) whereby
fine wires are used to delineate the decorative areas (cloisons in French,
hence cloisonné) into which enamel paste is applied before the object is fired
The Japanese characters used for the word shippō (the Japanese term for
enamelware) mean 'Seven Treasures'. which is a reference to the seven treasures
mentioned in Buddhist texts. Although these treasures may vary, they generally
included at least some of the following: gold, silver, emerald, coral, agate,
lapis lazuli, giant clamshell, glass and pearl. The Japanese applied this
expression to the rich colours found on Chinese enamel wares and later to those
they made themselves.

FOR ALL PACKAGES OUTSIDE EUROPE: Shipping times can vary a lot depending on
Customs & Shipping Company speed. We can not control this. For China (& rest of
Asia) & US allow at least 2 to 3 weeks. Depending on the situation it can take
up to 1.5 month. Rare cases of even 2 months have been seen to CHINA (and rest
of ASIA), this has to do with slow customs procedures. This also influences the
tracking data shown online. Please be patient!
