Can someone please tell me if this is an old or newer Vase and the era. I just bought this at an estate sale and I think the owner was Chinese, Japanese or Korean. I would also like to know what style this is called.
Thank you for any information...Liz

    The characters are Chinese. Is the glaze crazed? On the rim where it meets the table, the place it rests on, is that place worn down, scratched?

    Thank You Stillwater for your comments and aldionne also...
    The vase is so perfectly beautiful. The glaze is unmarked and beautiful to feel the smoothness. Everytime I look at this vase it seems I see something different each time. It is amazing with the colors and glaze. The bottom has no wear unless itt was also painted around the rim at one paint is there or glaze only the pottery showing . It probably was on the same spot for years. Everything at this estate sale was on the expensive side with oriental furniture and decorations throughout the whole home. The owner was wealthy before death 3 years ago. Thank you for any information you can provide.

    Still trying to find out the translation of the characters on this vase...Anyone know?

    The top one is:
    It means bright, intelligent, wise

    The second one is:
    Which means arms or armaments in Chinese, but also means Ainu in Japanese, which are the native Japanese people.

    Pronounced "hui-ring."

    Not sure if you'll be able to use that for anything though.

    It translates as "wise warrior" but I don't know what that would mean for a pottery mark. Hope you find this interesting
