Kirin ni komon kobako is cloisonne ware produced by Ando Cloisonne during the Taisho Era. Kirin running through the ultramarine heavens is described using wired cloisonne.
The vast ocean of clouds is expressed with light colors, and divided into left and right with the soaring Kirin. Lightning marks (raimon) indicating lucky omens (kissho mon-yo) are arranged on the edges of the cover; and maples, Chinese bellflowers and wisteria are on the side. Brocade (nishiki) of yotsubishi komon is stretched inside with silver rims.

With wired cloisonne, silver wires are attached to the metal base and glazed glass is impressed inside. Similar to swords, wired cloisonne is highly valued in the world as unique Japanese handicrafts. Ando Cloisonne has received many prizes within and outside of Japan including the Expo since its incorporation in 1880, and is successfully using the outstanding techniques of today.

Kirin running through the heavens looks humorous and happy. When it flies through the vast ocean of clouds, it will certainly pour good luck on the earth. This is an excellent work of cloisonne kobako filled with lucky symbol.
