I had to pick this up but don't know exactly what it is, but it feels right...
The paint is obviously done by hand, and the gold color is raised.
I especially like the 3rd photo where the kid is karate kicking the flower.

All input appreciated!

    Sorry, in laws in for dinner...'nough said there...

    Kinkozan? 1868 to 1927? Tsukuru? '68 to 13?

  7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 12 months ago
    I think it is Kinkozan mark 1147. The two marks on yours are marks 2 & 3 right to left.

  8. vetraio50 vetraio50, 12 months ago
    1447. Vase. Mark: Kinkozan tsukuru. Meiji (1868-1913) period.

    Now that's something I would definitely buy Amber......Beautiful ! I have a little Meiji Era jar as well and the style looks similar with the gold and floral painting. Mine has birds and mums instead of figures. -Mike-

    I have one with kind of similar mark! I will post! Maybe learn something!!

    V, thank you so much! I have spent the last half an hour, waiting or the coffee to percolate and reading up on my Kinkozan. I am impressed with our detective powers as it is not the clearest of signatures. Thank you so much for the help. I'm pretty confident I would not have gotten there without you.

    Mike, it's funny what bubbles up at the thrift. I got it at a place where I will leave empty handed 9 out of 10 times. But that is always mega treasure. Baccarat, Arabia, Danish enamel jewelry... So every time I get frustrated and think, just pass, I have to focus on the good stuff.

    Thank you for the loves...and the kind words Agram!
