Large Pair of Meiji Period Japanese Cloisonne Enamel Vases Attributed to Goto

$ 35,000
  • Description
    A large pair of Meiji Period Japanese cloisonne enamel vases attributed to Goto Seizaburo, 19th century.

    These vases were made during the Meiji period (1868-1912) in Japan and are characterized by their blue enamel background with intricate designs of flowers, birds (including pigeons), butterflies and landscapes.

    The use of blue enamel as a background creates a striking contrast with the colorful designs, making these vases particularly visually appealing which are appreciated for their beauty, craftsmanship, and cultural significance.

    Goto Seizaburo (1852-1914) was a renowned Japanese cloisonne enamel artist who lived and worked during the Meiji period (1868-1912). He was born in Nagoya and started his career as an apprentice to a local cloisonne enamel artist. He later moved to Tokyo and began working for the Ando Cloisonne Company.

    Goto Seizaburo was known for his exceptional skill and attention to detail in cloisonne enamel. He developed new techniques, including the use of transparent enamel, and created intricate designs that often featured flowers, birds, and other natural elements.

    His works were highly sought after by collectors and were exhibited at international exhibitions, including the Paris Universal Exposition in 1900, where he won a Gold Medal. He also received numerous awards and honors in Japan for his contributions to the art of cloisonne enamel.

    Today, Goto Seizaburo is considered one of the most important cloisonne enamel artists of the Meiji period, and his works continue to be highly valued and collected by art enthusiasts and collectors around the world.
