103 AN ELEGANT AWAJI BOTTLE VASE

104 A TAKEUCHI CHUBEI BOTTLE VASE

Japan, around 1880. A fine and typical example of the early Japanese Art Nouveau movement. Neatly potted ceramic with a lustrous turquoise monochrome glaze, crackled throughout. Unmarked, as expected on earlier Awaji wares, which were made between 1830 and 1939 on Japan’s Awaji island. The kilns closed in 1939 just before World War II.

Japan, Meiji period (1868-1912). Porcelain with a shark skin glaze and fine hand painted enamels. Depicting three red-crowned cranes and pine, both symbols of longevity. Manufacturer’s mark of Takeuichi Chubei with patent number to underside, this mark was used ca. 1890 - 1905.
