The large size and Goldstone panels also attest to the quality of the vase. Gold “tea dust” pioneered by Honda Yosabura and later used by the great Namikawa Yasuyuki is also sprinkled on the four panels.
Butterflies and lotus flowers decorate the top of the vase. The use of silver and gold as well as white metal fittings indicate a vase that was made without compromise. The vase is also in exceptional condition apart from one miniscule kiln bubble.
