IRVINE, GREGORY. JAPANESE CLOISONNE ENAMELS THE SEVEN TREASURES. London: V & A Publishing Victoria and Albert Museum, 2011. First Edition. ISBN: 9781851776573. 8vo. (24cm). pp. 96. Profusely illustrated in colour. With bibliography and illustrations of signatures. "From its renaissance in the 1840s Japanese cloisonné enamel manufacture rapidly reached a peak of artistic and technological sophistication between 1880 and 1910, a period referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of this exquisite craft. Cloisonné enamels rapidly became one of Japan’s most successful exports in the late nineteenth-century…this book explores these exquisite objects, from the elegant inlaid metalwork of the late seventeenth-century, through the Golden Age and into the twentieth-century."
