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 Japanâ€™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. Manufacturerâ€™s mark of Takeuichi Chubei with patent number to underside, this mark was used ca. 1890 - 1905.
