I have a small collection of Japanese pottery and ceramics and this little vase is one of my favourites.
The only mark is a very faint Japan stamped on the bottom. Great glaze over all, lots of raised and textured sections, and the shape is so balanced. But I particularly love the fish motif on each side with it's fat body and happy face. So appealing in a very Japanese way.
It has a very Lisa Larsen look to it I think. I know she was influenced by Japanese ceramics and art.
