Pair of MOP Black Lacquer on Brass Vases, Shelling Casing
click for detailed views


Pair of Japanese black lacquer over brass vases with mother-of-pearl inlay. The brass is re-purposed from unused artillery shells and the vases are heavier than one would expect. One of the lips looks repaired, but the were purchased in Japan, as is, in the first half of the 20th Century. They measure about 7 inches high.
