Japanese Satsuma Style Gilt and Hand-Painted Ceramic Miniature Vase, Artist-Signed, with a plethora of different birds, all quite interesting. The borders are lovely. All on a cream ground.
Country of Origin: Japan.
Medium: Ceramic, Sasuma Style.
Size: 4 1/4 inches tall.
Signed: On Bottom. It is in Japanese characters so I can not read it. I have left the original price label on with the name of the artist.
Hard to read, but I think it says Jio Torer. (By the way, the original price for this was $1,800.00).
Condition: Two tiny fleabites on top rim. There is a very tiny "ding" that is hard to find. It is in one of the background rocks. Still Good to Very Good Condition. Please ignore the flash. The colors are fine; no fading. Of course the colors may vary from the photos due to lighting and backgrounds.
Provenance: Provenance: This is one of a number of antique Japanese items that I purchased from a private collector. They have all been authenticated by the prestigious gallery Doyle Galleries
