public_access_description
Each of these unsigned shotai-jippo vases has an applied chrome-plated rim and base plate. Both vases have an overall silver yusen design of peony, bellflower, rose, hibiscus, convolvulus, gentian, and chrysanthemum in various colours of shaded enamels on a pale green translucent enamel ground. The enamels have been applied thickly to allow for the dissolving of the copper body. There has been much discussion as to the dating of the first production of shotai-jippo in Japan: dates from 1900 to 1910 have been given, while the technique is thought to have been perfected by Kawade Shibataro on behalf of the Ando Company. Although these two pieces have the thicker and heavier enamels usually associated with early examples of shotai-jippo, their chrome-plated rims suggest a later date. This description refers to FE.12-2011 and FE.13-2011.
