I have owned this bowl/vase for approx 32 years, I really do not know an awful lot about it! It has just been around, up on shelves, ignored mostly!! But today I got it down gave it a wipe over and took some photographs of it. It is really quite a thing! So any help on it will be very much appreciated! Many thanks to the CW crew if able to help!!! : )

    I believe the two characters to the top right hand corner, left to right are "FUKU". They appear on early Meiji cloisonné from 1860 - 1890. Japanese work imitating early Chinese wares.

    Whoa... That's an old one. I'd guess 2nd half of the 19th century. Its a good one too, probably worth a little bit. If I bought this at an estate sale, I'd be thrilled

    Thank you Stillwater, as I said, I have owned it for a long time and have taken it for granted really! It is nice to know that other folk would like to own it! I have never attempted to clean it, I suppose that would not be recommended? Thanks again! : )

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooo, not recommended. Maybe just the dust, but never try to polish it or anything. No water either, the enamel is porous by now and it may become discolored

    Thank you too musikchoo and dear Bellin for the Love!! : )
