Above are two bands of decoration - the lower being floral and the higher being a diaper based on lappets or lotus petals. The neck is wireless cloisonne (musen shippo), which is coloured dark brown flecked with red. Enamel colours include dark brown, reddish mid-brown, dark green, white, orange, dark blue, iron red, lemon yellow, pale lilac-blue and pink. Many of the colours show deliberate mottling and/or gradations.
The mid-brown and green reserves all carry small amounts of tea goldstone (chakin-seki). The inside of the neck is polished black enamel and inside the footrim is also black enamel, but not ground or polished. I would describe it as a largish, long necked, baluster shaped vase with a squat base. It is just over 24 cm tall and about 13 cm in maximum diameter.
The cloisonns are made of copper wire. The top and bottom rims are a white metal, perhaps nickel or nickel-plated copper. The enamel polishing is excellent. Dating this lovely piece is a bit difficult. There are lots of features which suggest the mid to late 1880s (such as the very traditional decoration), but others (such as the musen shippo and the white metal rims) suggest a little later.
So, I think it probably dates to the 1890s. Condition is excellent, with no chips, stars, losses or restoration. There is some mild corrosion to the white metal rims, which is not uncommon. I have many other Japanese antique and vintage items for sale.
