Offered here is a Japanese Champleve enameled bronze vase, exhibiting ringed handles on either side, incised patterning on the upper body, a stylized dragon and chrysanthemum motif, and a signed base. I would attribute this piece to the Meiji period at the earliest, or possibly the subsequent Taisho period, although it could also date to the early Showa period. A solid age range would be approximately 1900 to 1940. Stylistically speaking, there are both Japanese and Chinese elements here, which is somewhat common in these pieces. Approximately 12" tall and 8" wide at the widest point on the body. Overall good condition for age. No cracks to metal body.

Interior is a bit dusty. I have not tried to clean/polish/restore this piece in any way. It is in as-found condition.
