Cloisonne Exhibition at the V and A

 A Report by Sue Kewley (Region 5):

There is a terrific exhibition on at the V&A until August. It is called "The Seven Treasures: Japanese Cloisonne Enamels" It is in Room 45 Japan. There are 3 cases of enamels from the golden age of Japanese enamelling- c1880-1910. Some of the most beautiful vases I have ever seen. If you can't get to the exhibition at least look at the V&A website to see a few photos. There is a book by Gregory Irvine called Japanese Cloisonne Enamels that has lots of pictures from the collection. £9.99 from the V&A but I got one cheaper from Amazon.
