A beautiful, tall (12) brightly colored cloisonne enamel vase. This one has a foil underneath the transparent glaze, the foil being textured almost like fish skin, which gives depth, reflection and texture to the entire surface including the flowers.Even the colored enamel is transparent enough to get the effect of the textured and reflective base. Purple, white, and light red flowers, with green blade-like leaves. The colors in each blend and shade from light to dark within the same wire enclosure, to give a realistic effect. To me, even the back of the vase, where there are no flowers, is very attractive because of the clear enamel with the textured foil showning through. The background enamel is tinted a pale blue at the top, blending to a deeper tone at the bottom. A very attractive piece of art, in a fascinating medium.
