Description

A stunning example of the time-honored craft of cloisonné, this Smithsonian Floral Cloisonné Jar with Wooden Stand will lend grace and beauty to home or office. The colorful designs were created by hand-applying rich enamels to specially shaped wire compartments that had first been soldered to the brass vase. The colors came to life when they were fired in a kiln, then polished by hand. Display this masterpiece on the included wooden stand. Made in China.

I have been admiring this vase for a long time and was hesitant to order it, fearing it was very small. It's a much more substantial size than I expected. The colors are very bright and beautiful. Love the shape, artistry, and elegance. Very lovely. Also light weight. Definitely will keep and cherish this vase. You will love it if you like Asian art and Cloisonne in particular. Very pleased and delighted with my purchase.
