    This little vase is 5.5" high x 3.5" widest diameter and has the Koransha orchid mark on the bottom. On one side is a hand painted fish with some small water bubble circles and on the back is one small set of circles. Very inexpensive ebay find from a seller who thought it was new and did not know the maker or that it is Japanese. I think it is a few decades old and had a bit of build up from use inside which easily cleaned up. I think the seller thought it is new because it is in like new condition.

      This vase is a perfect example of Japanese craft art for me Kevin. Perfectly made, beautiful design and colour, an expressive fish, and the whimsical bubbles floating around.

      Thanks for your comment Manikin! There were only two really poor images of the vase in the auction and one was of the bottom, so I was not really sure what I was going to get so was pleasantly surprised!

      Thanks Karen! Koransha is my current favorite Japanese kiln. Their work is very sophisticated, even in this modest little fish vase.

      Thanks Jenni! The fish is what caught my eye!

      Thanks for loving my fish vase Jenni, ho2cultcha, fortapache, Karen, Manikin, dav2no1, Kevin, aura and RichmondLori!

      The intense blue background for the pastel coloring of the angel fish is a perfect combination!
      I love this vase!

      Beautiful- I adore the deep colours and lovely elegant shape of the fish- would fit in nicely on a decorative bathroom shelf...or even conservatory with leafy trailing plants near it.

      Thanks for your comment LaurenRedmond! I bought this on an online auction site and the two images were really (Really) bad and it came from a seller with not great feedback (only 14 total and only 91% positive) who sells mostly recycled clothing, shoes, junk, etc., so I wasn't sure what I was getting, but it was only a bit over $5 so I took a shot because it is Koransha and was very pleased when it came. The colors are spectacular and the quality is very high. I would like to make a place for it on a high shelf or in front in one of my china closets so it doesn't get broken, but have not yet decided where it will sit....
