Description A Japanese Cloisonne copper vase decorated in an intriguing Art Deco style circa 1920s Taisho period. The baluster-shaped vase is of an impressively large and classic form with a slender bottleneck and a pair of gilt ears flanking the lower part of the body. The enamel cloisonne decoration is of the typical Art Deco style with swirling waves and concentric circles, all in subdued and subtly contrasting colors. Noticeably, it also centrally incorporated the traditional Japanese element the Kamon of Mitsudomoe, an emblem with three swirling comas, which was originally used in the Shinto shrines. Both the pattern and color pallet were a departure from the traditional cloisonne made in Japan during Meiji and Taisho period. Although the maker is not identified, it is an unusual piece made in response to the Art Deco movement from the west, and likely for the export market.
