A Japanese Plique-a-jour bowl by Ando Jubei Company

Sold Sold
  • Description
    A small but exquisite plique-a-jour cloisonne bowl by Ando Company, likely mid-late 20th century. This is a work of art is crafted entirely with the most refined designs and technique. The pattern features large calla lilies in a brilliant shade of purple, green and blue intercepted with bundles of Chinese bell flowers. The gradient color pallet is subtle but striking, calling to mind the painting of Georgia O'Keeffe. Under the light, it irradiates a translucent beauty that is hard to describe. With silver color metal ring and three feet (not marked as silver), an Ando sticker remains under the piece as well as the wood box as shown.
    For a similar piece see Number FE.31:1, 2-2011 in the collection of Victoria and Albert Museum Collection.
    Plique-a-jour was reputedly introduced and further developed in Japan by Ando Jubei (1876-1953) and Kawade Shibatarō (1856–1921), after he saw a French piece in Paris exposition around 1900s. It is known as shotai-jippo, meaning cloisonne without backing (whereby the metal body was dissolved after firing and polishing). The technique is notoriously difficult and labor-intense. It was rarely used to make large piece as the surface tension tends to break the enamel.
