Today we are thrilled to offer for sale a very rare antique Japanese Nippon Art Nouveau moriage vase! This rare and fabulous piece is intricately and lavishly hand-polychromed and hand-decorated, with desirable applied high relief “heavy cake” ornamentation. The gourd-shaped vase features a beautifully hand-painted floral and pine cone-motif background, with overlay high relief decoration of pine cones and leaves. The front and back of the vase features a center medallion with gorgeous hand-painted colorful roses. The vase features two swirling Art Nouveau handles that connect with each of the medallions. The vase features “jeweled” arabesque top and bottom detailing. This truly wonderful piece is quite special and looks even better in person! The shape of this vase is exactly like Van Patten 1st book Plate #192 top row. Pattern design and moriage is very similar to Van Patten Book 2, Plate #478. The piece is marked on the bottom “Nippon hand painted “. Vase presents beautifully and is in excellent antique condition, with very minimal display wear and patina commensurate with age. No chips, cracks, or repairs. This exquisite and rare art vase will make a truly fabulous addition to any serious Moriage collection, and will add richness to any interior. Great investment potential. Fresh to the market!
