Genji flower vase


Item code : EDC045

Size 15 x 8 cm
Date Meiji (1868 - 1912)


An unsigned Meiji period porcelain flower vase decorated with enamel, golden gilt and iron red pattern. The base of the neck is decorated with two three- dimensional chrysanthemum flowers. Two monograms on the neck correspond with chapters in ‘The Tale of Genji’. Lower, a golden and iron red textile pattern with blue, green and white chrysanthemum flowers decorates the white body. Four small rectangular cartouches with images of seasonal plants complement the decoration closed by an iron red and gold frieze at the bottom of the vase.
