This is a lovely Japanese Arita porcelain vase with the Koransha 'Orchid Spray' trademark in underglaze blue on the bottom. This particular style of mark indicates that the piece dates from the Showa period (1926-1989). The decoration of the vase shows underglaze blue leaves and rock work with very delicate overglaze red orchids. The vase stands approximately 4 1/4 inches high and 5 inches wide at the shoulder. The piece has a 1/4 inch high flared rim that is 2 1/2 inches across and the foot rim is 2 1/4 inches in diameter. The vase is in excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or restorations.
