Hi, I bought this at a flea market , I think it's quite old, but really I don't know a thing about it. It's 4"tall. Any ideas? Thanks, JOanne

    Hi JOanne, I'd like to join your 'no clue' club if that doesn't disqualify me from commenting (read that rambling). It's not like any Japanese porcelain or pottery I've seen. I'd call it 'Japanese Impressionist' since it gets a message across without coloring inside the lines. It's thick walled and appears to be baked rather than fired making it a good candidate for a one-off piece from a hobby potter. All in all a charming keeper. Regards, ...Jim
