You know how it is sometimes, you acquire something at a fraction of it's value and the fist pumps and you yell YES! and admire yourself as well as the object?
This is my object!
I have a small sake cup from Kuniaki which was all I could afford of this masters works and dreamt of one day having one of his vases.
Recently I saw a vase for sale in Japan that I was sure was a Kuniaki but clearly the seller had no idea. I bought it.
Imagine my excitement opening that box........the vase was everything I expected and more, and yes, on the base was signed Kuniaki, in correct script.
A typically delicate art piece from this master executed on a graceful shape.
Beautiful blue glass, clear cased, decorated with gold and glass enamels.
Yippee!! I'm a bit happy.....
