Constructed using a pair of lidded Japanese Imari vases, of square and waisted form, with bronze mounts and accents in the ‘Japonisme’ oriental taste, which were added in France, and utilised to serve as oil lamps, with clear funnels, and green etched glass shades.
After the arrival in Japan in 1853 of Admiral Perry and his gunships, and the subsequent opening of trade with the West, under the Meiji restoration of 1868, the newly exported arts of Japan became highly fashionable, and informed artists,such as Whistler and Monet, and the retail European market for a generation.
