This Noritake bone china vase is about 8.6" high. It is stamped on the bottom and came in the original presentation box with some documentation. It is in new condition but was made in 1976 according to the Noritake Collector's Guild web site. I am not sure if it is new old stock or has just been in some collector's closet for the past 44 years. It was only $9 so hard to pass up and was my first December purchase. Some of these 1970s Noritake Studio Collection vases had elaborate decoration but this one is pretty simply adorned with a black rim. Simple, but elegant. Also, according to the Noritake Collector's Guild site, this vase was made for domestic sale in Japan.
