Beautiful Noritake Nippon paneled urn or vase, most likely made in the 1920's. The vase has a lake scene with a swan. This dramatic vase is 10 inches tall and about 6 inches wide. It has a cobalt blue background.
No chips or cracks. There is old staining in the bottom of the vase. There are spots of loss in the narrow gold band at the bottom of the neck. There may be minor gold loss consistent with age, but since this vase has Nippon's signature gold wash decoration (especially on the handles), it is hard to tell what is decoration and what might be loss.
