    I bought this over 10 years ago in an antique shop in some small Japanese town, and wondered if I can get any more information on it. There is no mark on the base, but it is clear to see it is a genuine piece. All I know is that is is almost certainly Meiji. It is a lovely item, but I am not sure about anything of the maker or series. I bought from a town on the Osaka region if that helps (South Central Japan).

      i had two similar ones that sat on my mantle for many years. Hand painted, Japanese vases, however with no marking on the bottom/body..this is most likely a reproduction Japanese vase that i'm sure is vintage, probably closer to mid 1900's....mine were as well and since purchasing mine, i've seen a TON of these stunning over-sized hand-painted Japanese vases. The Victorian era was notorious for recreating ! the bottom of yours is exactly like mine and mine was a 1940-60s vase....it's still beautiful!! If it was a true ancient vase, there WILL be markings. :) still lovely!

      ps...i bought my pair at an antique auction! over 20 years ago....now i know to always find the "mark" and even then, so many out there recreate to deceive...keep digging, maybe you'll find out something from an Asian Art specialist..:)

      Looking?at the detail on the vase, if it is a recreated/deceptive version as you appear to indicate by the fact that there is no noticable makers mark, means either that;- (a) the maker did not need to make a mark at that time (where the design was the makers mark?), or, (b) if it is a fake, then it is better than most of the origionals I have ever seen of this type of vase (as the photos indicate [see also the vase neclace of filigree work]).
