I had this bowl bought for me from a private house and contents auction 15 years ago. It was listed as Japanese vintage bowl 40s/50s with men and Dragon.
There is a label on base with Made in Japan. No.11813. There is a hand painted number and something in Japanese which im
not sure if its a transfer or hand painted. I think probably hand painted.
The bowl is quite heavy. 3.75lbs/1.7kg.
10 inches diameter. 4 inches heigh.
Again, I think its hand painted with little men and one woman, and a Dragon inside. Men and a dragon on the outside. The 'eyes' and all the dragon are slightly raised/ textured.
I do hope someone can tell me anything about this curious bowl. Age, depiction, tourist piece? Region etc.
with many thanks.
