    I found this vase which measures a little bit under 8 inches high today at the flea market. i bought it from a friend there. Where do you think it was made? when do you think it was made? would this be called 'sancai'? or is it just a wannabe sancai? any insights?

      sorry this aint sancai, unfortunately this is rather mediocre

      sancai meaning 3 colors, and you have that here on the vase.
      There is a wide range of how it was used to decorate a piece of pottery.Here is an image from Wiki. I would say your's is maybe, probably, an early to mid 20th version?
