public_access_description
This small and elegant tea-jar (Japanese: ‘natsume’) has all the hallmarks of the best work of Namikawa Yasuyuki (1847-1910). The mirror-black cloisonné enamel ground is covered with gold and silver wire decoration of scrolling ‘karakusa’ (Chinese grass). These are combined with summer flowers in shades of polychrome cloisonné enamels with small roundels to accentuate the flowers. The jar is quite heavy for its size, and the interior and base are all gilded in a deep golden colour. The base carries an applied silver plaque with the incised inscription 'Kyoto Namikawa'.
