This fine pair of cloisonné-enamel musen and moriage presentation vases are by the Ando Jubei Company. Each vase decorated partly in relief and finely worked in musen and yusen enamels with a complementary design, they were created after a design by Watanabe Seitei, one of the first Nihonga (Japanese-style) painters to visit Europe, attending the 1878 international exhibition in Paris.

Estimate £25,000-30,000.
