This pair of Hayashi Chuzo Japanese Cloisonne vases are about 25cm (10in) high. They're a nice matching pair with midnight blue grounds.
I identified them from the recently published "The Art of Japanese Cloisonne Enamel" by Fredric Schneider, the signature is 042 in his index of marks and signatures.
This book helped me identify a few other pieces as well, and I can highly recommend it as the new standard work on Japanese cloisonne.
