A very large antique Japanese vase from the early 1900s. This piece is heavily decorated with gilt trim and raised enamel dot decoration. It stands 11 3/4" tall and 6 3/4" across including the elaborate wing-like handles. The front center is hand painted with a rural scene surround by a frame of gilded fans with raised turquoise and pink enamel dots. the background color is green with shadowing. It is marked on the bottom with a blue floral wreath with Made N Japan in the center as pictured. This likely was made at the end of the Nippon period. The vase has no chips or cracks. the decoration is also in great condition with the only loss appearing to be on the inside of the handles. This is a very elaborate piece and with its great size, sure to draw attention.
This is a heavy piece of pottery, weighing almost 3 1/2 lbs before packing. US shipping to the lower 48 US states will be via FedEx Ground/Home Delivery, while shipping to the UK, Japan, or Australia will be via USPS Priority Mail International.
