From its renaissance in the 1840s, Japanese cloisonné enamel manufacture rapidly reached a peak of artistic and technological sophistication between 1880 and 1910, considered to be the golden age of this exquisite craft. Victoria and Albert Museum Senior Curator Gregory Irvine here recounts the development and resurgence of the art form, and delves into the V&A's long commitment to collecting these enamels. Showing considerable variety of style and function-and with designs that include flowers, dragons, and samurai-89 of these gorgeous vases, dishes, and teapots appear here in full color.
