Ucagco made a couple styles of these ladies dressed like they are going to the opera back in the Elizabethan era with huge fanned collars that rise well above their necks. I have few different versions of this style head vase and they can all be displayed together for a dramatic effect. Her large blue collar features a raised decoration like perhaps it was meant to be covered in lace. A pearl and gold choker accent her neck. She looks even more fabulous when she is paired with her opposite sister in pink. I would love to entertain an offer for both!
Condition: Excellent squeaky clean condition inside and out having no chips, cracks or crazing.
Marks: no label but the style of the vase and her wise pedestal base indicate that she was made by Ucagco Ceramics Japan.
