This exquisite Japanese tall glazed pottery vase is much more gorgeous in person. According to the seller, it is dated to mid 20th century and made in Arita, Japan. It is a very unusual vase and I have started to see more of these now.. It appears to be glass over glaze over porcelain and it is possible it is Chinese. I do not really know, but it is wonderful and the pictures do not do it justice. I purchased it from a gentleman in California who collects Japanese vases. It appears dark on the outside, but when light shines through it onecan see different colors as if in a prism. It reminds me of the ocean. Is is marked on the bottom, I do not know the mark yet, and it could be Chinese as an afterthought, we will see about getting some help with it. There is no damage, cracks or chips to the vase. Fascinating.
