Vintage Japanese Bronze Damascene Style Etched Miniature Vase
This Japanese Vintage Etched and Lacquered Bronze miniature vase with Mt Fuji scene most likely dates to the early Showa period, which started in 1926 and lasted until 1989. It is etched bronzed then either enameled or lacquered in black in a very decorative style similar to Damascene. The etching features traditional Japanese buildings and trees in the foreground with Mt Fuji towering in the background. THere are butterflies decorating the rims.
- Condition 8/10. There are bends to the base and lip (please see photos) but this piece has excellent patina.
