Lovely true pair of vases, Satsuma from Japan, signed on the bases in gold, we have been unable to read this signature, these came to us from a collector who dated these as 19th Century, I am a little more cautious and will date them to 1900-1940, but they may be older. Pottery base, beautiful glaze with Moriage accents, cool bird shaped handles in gold, some wear on the handles. No chips of any significance, no repairs. Each vase measures 10 and 1/8 " tall and 6 " wide at the handles. Warriors or Kings on one side, Court Ladies on the other. Beautiful faces, lots of gold work and decorations. Price is for the pair not for sale individually.
