Lovely 19/20c Antique Meiji Period Japanese Vase Ginbari Goldfish Bronze
Lovely and beautifully made piece of Ginbari cloisonne.
Originally part of the Catherina collection of Japanese bronzes and cloisonne
that was partly auctioned in Amsterdam in 2006 at Sothebys. Some pieces are
pictured in the catalogue of the collection from an Exhibition on Japanese and
Chinese Cloisonne in the Princessenhof Museum in 1992.
Cloisonné is an enamelling technique in which the pattern is formed by wires
soldered to the surface of the object to be decorated, which is usually made
from copper, forming cells or cloisons, each of which holds a single colour of
enamel paste which is then fired, and ground and polished. The champleve
technique also uses an enamelling technique, but the cells are formed by
carving into the surface ot the object, or in the casting. The cloisonne
technique has been in use since the 12th century BC in the west, but the
technique did not reach China until the 13th or 14th century. It became popular
in China in the 18th century. Initially bronze or brass bodies were used, and
in the 19th century copper, at which time the quality of th eitems produced
began to decline. Chinese cloisonné is the best known enamel cloisonné, though
the Japanese produced large quantities from the mid-19th century, of very high
technical quality. In the west the cloisonne technique was revived in the mid
19th century following imports from China, and its use continued in the Art
Nouveau and Art Deco periods.

FOR ALL PACKAGES OUTSIDE EUROPE: Shipping times can vary a lot depending on

Asia) & US allow at least 2 to 3 weeks. Depending on the situation it can take
up to 1.5 month. Rare cases of even 2 months have been seen to CHINA (and rest
of ASIA), this has to do with slow customs procedures. This also influences the
