Description A beautifully decorated cloisonné vase with silver rims by Ando Jubei (1876-1956), the celebrated Japanese Shippo studio. The piece is dated to late Meiji to early Showa period circa 1900-1920s. In a classic baluster form with a slightly waisted neck and flaring mouth rim, the vase radiates with its bright yellow background. Yusen shippo technique (wired cloisonné with silver), a typical technique from Owari province, was used brilliantly to depict a bundle of floral designs consisting of leafy stems of purple chrysanthemum and orange dahlias. Great attention was paid to the visual gradience of the color on the petals and leaves, rendering it a stylized but realistic imagery. With the silver wire exposed, the image also appears well defined, sharp and focused. Trimmed with silver on the lip and the base, there is a two-character "jungin" (pure silver) mark on foot rim and Ando mark on the center of the base, with stand. The piece retains its original box cushioned with brocade pads and signed with title and artist (Carefully made by Jubei) and sealed. There is also an associated wood base of Chinese taste for display. It was mostly likely made for an important client based on how it was titled, signed and packed.
