This is a lovely vintage Nippon porcelain bowl or vegetable dish hand painted with a lake scene with trees and a sailboat. The bowl is oval with small handles which are highlighted with gold and the scene is painted predominantly in yellow and green. The decoration is very nicely rendered - it looks almost like a watercolor. It is marked on the back with the blue rising sun backstamp.
It measures about 9 inches by 7 inches and it is in excellent condition with no chips cracks or other damage. There is some wear to the gold around the edge.
