    This is a lovely little Satsuma vase I recently found.
    It is typical of export ware from the 1920s/30s,and although the hand painting is not exceptional, it's pretty good.
    After identifying this vase and reading about the style on, it seems this style of painted ceramic was made mainly for export, and was not sold much in Japan.

    The base marks read Satsuma Nippon, and according to a knowledgeable and helpful member of the Japanese ceramic facebook group, the red mark around the edge reads "ho", probably the decorator.

    I find it quite charming and pretty!
    Height: 15cm

      Thanks Judy! It's a great size, fits nicely in a small spot. Most of my glass is gargantuan compared to it!

      Ohh, Karen, lovely piece!
      Nearly two different vases from one side to the other, a bright scene with the red leaves, then a peaceful landscape :-)

      Happy new collecting year, in health and... wealth :-D

      Love this! I don't know why I was surprised to see that it's yours... probably because it's not glass ?!?
