I found this antique Japan earthenware vase at my local thrift store. It has a crude construction, with a prominent seam dividing the top and bottom, and an intense lean. It features enamel painted flowers, branches and flying insects. It is heavily crazed, and there is a small amount of wear on the enamel. It has some various colors of wax lining the interior base, so it must have been previously used as a candle holder.
Although it has a crude appearance it is still charming. Unfortunately being a porous earthenware, there is a stain from the thrift store pricing on the bottom.
It is unmarked by an artist.
