Here is an extremely rare Japanese musen shippo (wireless) enamel cloisonné vase decorated with a building. The vase is very understated and simple and worked in various shades of green enamels. The design is very tranquil with a winter scene with snow-laden trees and roads with several light enameled clouds. Some authors have confidently stated that the Japanese workshops did not "paint-on enamels, " so this example provides unequivocal proof that they actually did. The background is finished in a high polish in dark green enamel and is in pristine vintage condition without any major faults such as cracks, chips or hairlines or restoration.This exact vase is pictured on page 63, in Chapter 8, "Musen-Jippo, Without wire, wireless enameland E-Gaki-Jippo painted enamel, " in Gary Yoshino's book entitled, Japanese Cloisonne Enamels; A Private Collector's Notes and Reference Guide. Overall, a very refined and high quality cloisonné vase that is in pristine condition marked by the Sato workshop.
The height of this vase is approximately 7.25 inches. The width of the vase is approximately 4.0 inches.
