Nippon generally refers to Japanese wares made during the period of 1891 to 1921. Nippon, meaning Japan, identified the country of origin to comply with American importation restrictions.

This gorgeous hand painted Nippon vase is decorated with hibiscus blossoms in variegated shades of white/peach and deep rose/pink nestled among leaves of white/gray, apricot/dark gray and mauve, each delicately outlined, veined and highlighted with gold, against a muted satin background of pale apricot and aqua. Other smaller floral, leaves and unopened buds in shades of pale pastel apricot/tan seem to rise out of a mist and interact with the prominent hibiscus assortment. The handles and rim are decorated with gold and a delicate string of tiny beads surrounding the rim. The vase measures 8" in height, 5 3/4" from handle-to-handle, 3 1/2" across the top and 3" across the base. The vase is marked in green with the Nippon #47 mark, consisting of an "M" within a wreath and "Hand Painted Nippon". The M stands for the importer, Morimura Bros. There are two very tight hairlines that extend across the central hibiscus flower and extends a short distance beyond. This can only be seen under close examination (see photo 6); no other issues. Priced with this fracture in mind. Beautiful color pallet.
