P1982 : Japanese Totai (i.e. ceramic bodied cloisonne') bottle Japanese $1,100.00
Category : Pottery and Porcelain
Sub Categories : Oriental, cloisonne'
This 19th century, 11 1/4" tall bottle shows some, but very few, extremely minor ware upon very close inspection. Ihave shown the two largest examples in the photos. They are tiny pin pricks of missing enamel. Some of the wiring used to make the designs can be felt if you rub your hand around the bottles you would feel on all pieces of this type of cloisonne'. A cylinder shapped brush bottle is the most commonly found Totia. They are often more subdued coloring and with less decoration. There are signature marks on the bottom(see photos) but I have not deciphered them.
