ANTIQUE c1890-1910 JAPANESE KUTANI PORCELAIN VASE HAND PAINTED BIRDS BUTTERFLIES Description
This antique circa 1890-1910 Japanese Kutani porcelain vase, is hand thrown of large ovoid form with three applied leaf form feet and two applied butterfly form boss handles to the neck. It is finely hand painted in typical Kutani palette with displaying courting birds amongst flowers and blossoms between borders and lovely decoration to the butterfly bosses. This gorgeous looking vase has and hand painted red oxide / signature to the base, the Kutani mark on the right is partly rubbed with one character missing.
It is in good condition apart from some crackle in the glaze and one crackle on the rim, which may have developed into a 1.3cm, .1/2" hairline crack. The hand painting is in very good condition with only a tiny bit of wear to some of the more delicate thin vein gilding on some leaves and petals, we believe it is in very good condition for its age and use (please see photos).
