I have a vintage Kutani Toya Satsuma porcelain art vase that is in very good to excellent condition. It is signed, has the original foil label & was made in Japan.
It is 7 1/2" tall, 4 1/4" wide at the widest area, the base is 2 1/2" wide & the top is 2 1/4" wide. It is a stunning Kutani design using their hand painted high gloss glazing technique that they perfected. The green & blue colors are iridescent & shiny & the gold top & bottom are the perfect accents for this piece or art.
I believe that it is a quite rare piece because it has an Art Nouveau design/look & may be from the turn of the century. I have looked for others that are similar but have not found much. It has no chips, cracks or scratches & has been packed away for many years. I do know the original owner & she has possessed it for many, many years.
If anyone has any information about it, I would greatly appreciate it.
