    This Japanese tsurukubi, or crane necked, bud vase is 9.75" high x 3" at its widest. I bought this from a lady in Milwaukee whose father was stationed in Japan after WWII and whose uncle was stationed in Okinawa in the 1950s and 1960s. Both were collectors and she inherited their collections and is uncertain about which man owned this vase. The colors and shape just seemed very odd to me so I decided to add it to my pile, since it came with a tomobako. Maker unknown. The small white spot in one image in image 3 is a flaw in the glaze, not a damage.

      I would have picked that too!
      Great shape as you say Kevin but I also love the soft colouring.

      Very pleasing! The colours are indeed most striking. The shape is tsurukubi, or in English, a "crane neck" vase, a classic (and graceful) style. Unfortunately I can't make out the handwriting on the tomobako well enough to take a stab at what it says.

      Thanks for your comments and the information you shared, rhineisfine! Too bad some of these artists had such poor penmanship!
