Japan, large pair of lacquer cloisonne vases on porcelain, Meiji period.

Very large pair of enamel cloisonné on porcelain vases, decorated with birds and flowers on a bark tree gorund. Geometrical borders.
Jiki-shippo is a kind of cloisonné applied on a porcelain body. Pieces using this technique are rare due to the relatively fragile and delicate surface technique and also to the fact that is was dicovered around 1885 but had a relatively short existence due to the difficulty in producing unflawed specimen in manufacture.
The other name of the technique used for those vases is Nuri shippo, A Jikki shippo technique where lacquer is used instead of enamel.
The process of making this type of cloisonné is complex, starting with the porcelain base ( coming mainly from Arita) formed into different shapes, to which flat copper wires are then affixed with vegetal glue, in decorative patterns after an original drawing.
Lacquer of different colors is then applied to fill the cloisonné. Ground mother of pearl can be also used.
The lacquer of the background body is then worked to simulate a rough, natural, tree like surface. It s why cloisonné on porcelain of this type are often called “Tree Bark”.cloisonné or Totai shippo.
This type of cloisonné was only made for a short period of time and discontinued due to the difficulty in producing unflawed specimens in manufacture.
Because the difficulty of the technique example of jikki shippo are rather small in size. Those vases were probably imported for an international exhibition.
