      This beautiful vase is actually plique a jour, a form of cloisonne. Although the Japanese make these too I am pretty sure this one is Chinese, possibly early 2othC, because of it's style.
      Have a look here for background on plique a jour:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plique-à-jour

      If you search online in images you should find similar.
      I'm very envious!
