Meiji Era Japanese Ginbari Cloisonne Enamel Copper Covered Jar Tea Caddy Geisha
HERES AN ORIGINAL MEIJI-ERA JAPANESE GINBARI (GIN-BARI / GINBARI-JIPPO) COMBINBED WITH TRADITIONAL CLOISONNE (SHIPPO-YAKI) ENAMEL-ON-COPPER COVERED JAR DISPLAYING A SIX-SIDED FORM WITH SIX DISTINCT PANEL DESIGNS INCLUDING THREE GEISHA WOMEN AND THREE FLOWER COMPOSITIONS AND A CIRCULAR GINBARI FLOWER MEDALLION ON THE LID! Measuring approximately six and one quarter inches (6 1/4) in height to the top of the lid, four and one half inches (4 1/2) across the body of jar at its widest point, by three inches in diameter across the top of the lid, this original Meiji-era Japanese covered jar or tea caddy displays a traditional cloisonné background on the lid and jars body into which are distinct ginbari cloisonné panels. The ginbari panels are made up of alternating Geisha women and flower compositions and rendered in shades of blue and green enameling. Please Note: The base metal for this ginbari and traditional cloisonné covered jar is copper, the foil sheet for each of the distinct panels is silver, and the bottom of the covered jar is brass. Lastly, the overall enameling on this covered jar is rendered in shades of pink, blue, green, yellow, white, and rust-brown! Condition: From outward appearances, this Meiji-era Japanese ginbari and traditional cloisonné covered jar or tea caddy looks to be in excellent condition quite nice! HOWEVER, and please pay attention, two of the ginbari cloisonné panels, one Geisha and one flower composition, have small craze lines within them. In addition, there is some age-related wear to the underside bottom and exposed metal areas around the rim area, and there is one very small nick on the outer edge of the cloisonné lid (barely visible). Overall and regardless of the faults mentioned, this is still a nice example of Meiji-era Japanese ginbari and traditional cloisonné!
