Seller: wilderness03 (2,212) 100%, Location: Deerfield, Virginia, Ships to: US, Item: 123312761242 This auction is for a very fine antique Japanese cloisonne teapot from Japan's "Golden Age of Cloisonné" (1880 - 1910) during the Meiji era (1868 - 1912). This was a time of great achievements by Japan in the art of making cloisonne. This small teapot is a wonderful example of Japan's fine cloisonne work during this period. Flowers, butterflies and leaves cover the black ground on the teapot in colors of green, white, blue, yellow, pink and rust. There are specs of goldstone that sparkle in the light. There are traditional Japanese borders on the lid, around the opening, on the spout & handle, around the feet and near the bottom. The details on the teapot are exquisite. The teapot sits on three metal feet and the bottom is decorated in dark blue cloisonne with a white flower in the center. The finial on the lid is metal with a colored stone in the center. The metal appears to be bronze and has a dark patina on the finial, top, spout and on the feet. The teapot is not marked as is common with cloisonne from this period. A really superb vintage carved open work wooden tripod stand is included with the teapot but is not original to the teapot. The three recessed openings on the top fit the three feet on the teapot very well and gracefully set off the teapot on display. There are four graceful feet on the dark reddish stand and beautiful hand carved details. The stand could be Japaneses or Chinese and is a very fine collectible by itself. There are incised numbers on the recessed displays area of the stand. There is a little pitting and tiny enamel loss as is common with antique cloisonne. Most notable is around the finial on the lid. There are no cracks, chips, hairlines, repairs or damage to the vase. The stand is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks, chips, paint loss, repairs or damage. There could be surface scratches on the stand from normal use.

This teapot design is classic and very beautiful. The quality is excellent. Old carved tripod stands that fit these Japanese teapots are very difficult to find and this stand is superb.
