This is a lovely little vase, 6" tall. I think the flowers are chrysanthemums. Bought if on Etsy of all places after asking for a couple of more photos. The soft brown shades from dark to light as your eye moves up to the top of the vase. The finish is the satiny bisque and there is definitely a front and back which apparently Noritake decided was desired to make it more interesting. It has the blue leaf backstamp which places it at least to 1900 if not a few years earlier. I'm fairly sure this was a decorative piece as I can't see this in daily use.
(Darn, that view of the Moriage flower is out of focus! Forgot to set camera on macro that time.)
