Rare Miniature Kutani Vase with Lacquered Design
Click on image above for more views


This is an very finely decorated, beautiful miniature Japanese Kutani vase, the likes of which becomes available only very rarely. Not only is it a wonderfully detailed piece, but the glaze is a rare cobalt with areas of lighter streaks, expecially on the inside of the mouth. The decoration is as fine or finer than the best Satsuma and is not only executed in gold, but also has copper colored lacquers/enamels - the photos show the exquisitely detailed decoration. All of this on a piece that measures only 2 7/16" tall by 1 1/8" in diameter! This earthenware piece is unmarked and is in very nice condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There is some light rubbing of the lacquer in areas and some rubbing of the teapot in one of the reserves, but nothing that can be clearly seen without the use of a glass/loop ...... $675.00
