Update on Dragon Vase Presented at NWAC

In the lab today, I found a rim piece to the vase that Olivia McDaniel presented on at the Northwest Anthropological Conference (NWAC) this month! It is a Japanese, Nippon era (1891-1921), moriage style (raised enamel/clay decoration) vase with a the jewel-eyed slip-trailed dragon design.  Luster is located on the interior lip portion of the fragment, cataloged as 10-2-103. Please refer to Olivia’s paper “For the Man” located on this blog for more information on this style of design or related artifacts. Stay tuned next week to find out if this cross-mends with one of the other two associated pieces.
