Traditional lacquer based kintsugi, Edo period black and white vase.

Traditional lacquer based kintsugi, Edo period black and white vase. The first 2 or 3 photos show it before I have done anything to it, the last ones show it after I have removed some of the previous repair and given it a good wash. I will restore the top part which is chipped.

Traditional kintsugi, new project

I got this recently in this condition. It is a 2 level ceramic container. The collector who had it had it repaired and then must have dropped it again.
