Pretty Nippon Beaded Patterns
This is an object that I have at home. I love the beautiful pattern on this antique beaded Nippon ewer. After painting my ukuleles, I started looking at designs on other objects and I became fascinated with art nouveau vases. Some of the the vases have romantic figures and faces incorporated into the designs which echo the paintings of the time. It's so much fun and educational to look at well-crafted objects of the past.
