Hand potted and hand painted large prunus vase that is a match stick or bottle shape. You can see and feel the potter’s wheel marks under the glaze.
A heavy hand potted porcelain vase with a tall cylinder neck and bulbous bottle shaped body. The vase has good glaze control as the glaze stops evenly above the foot.

The painting is slightly blurred. The foot and mouth rim are not painted.
The vase has a raised unglazed foot and a glazed base. There is a double ring of cobalt on the base but no other marks or labels.
