This dazzling Blue Floral Cloisonné Jar with Wooden Stand is a stunning example of the time-honored craft of cloisonné. The exquisite floral designs were created by hand-applying rich enamels to specially shaped wire compartments that were then soldered to the brass vase. The brilliant blues came to life when they were fired in a kiln, then polished by hand. Display this masterpiece on the included wooden stand.
Our Freer Gallery of Art—donated to the nation by Charles Lang Freer—curates one of the world's most important collections of Asian art. In addition to its extensive collection of oriental art, prints, sculpture, and silk panels, the Gallery contains a number of fine cloisonné pieces.
