Early 20th Century Japanese Octagonal Zinc Vase

About

Traditional Japanese metalworkers are renowned for creating specialized alloys that elevated the art of refining, molding, and casting metals. An alloy of zinc and copper gives this octagonal vase its rich dark color, intricately decorated with mountainous landscapes and meandering borders. Set in high relief against the matte texture of this cast vessel, we love how the buffed surface of the raised design brings out its warmth.
