Musen enameled Japanese Vase, Meiji era

A baluster-shaped vase in cloisonné enamels decorated in white and red with a plum tree in bloom by a river, in "musen" enamel, another tree surrounded by mist, on a pale gray and pale blue background simulating the morning mist. On the back of the base, the "yusen" mark of Gonda Hirosuke. Japan, Meiji period (1868-1912)

This mark corresponds to the character "haku", white, first part of the name of the Nagoya workshop of Gonda, "Hakuryuen" (garden of the white dragon).

Bibliography: "Japanese Cloisonné" by Gregory Irvine. "Japanese Enamels of the Golden Age" by Barry Davies Oriental Art. Musen: Literally "without partition". The partition was removed before firing thus allowing a soft decoration without line
