Pair Vintage Japanese Cast Brass & Champleve Enamel Dolphin Handled Vases (Code 1800)
A pair of early 20th century Japanese champleve enamel and brass vases. Highly decorated examples with patterned bodies and dolphin style handles. They are cast so very heavy and the enamel is of course done by hand. To the underside they are stamped 'Made in Japan' somewhat obscured by the black enamel and this would date them to the inter-war period. Nice decorative examples of a good size to make an impactful display.
Normal age related wear and some rubbing from cleaning over the decades. Both have small casting faults to the bases which have been factory filled in using a silver coloured metal (largest example shown). See images for general condition.
