Object literature: Ando Jubei (1876–1956) was a Japanese artist that dominated Nagoya's enameling industry in the late Mejii era. Ando Jubei was the Meiji era's most prolific creator of presentation wares: artworks that were commissioned by members of the Imperial Family for presentation to foreign dignitaries. He exhibited at the Japan-British Exhibition of 1910. His work is held in the collections of many museums around the world.
