Its a tapering cylindrical shape, narrower at the base with wider shoulders and a neck with a thick rim at the top. The shoulders are decorated with a typical Satsuma palette of orange and gilt with raised white decoration including 4 flower heads. The body is more unusual, brown at the base fading into a deep sky blue with beautifully painted lily flowers.One flower's petals are tinged with pink and the main flower is raised with a pale green centre and blue highlights. The flower head beside it is all gilt and the leaves are brown and green with gilt veins. There is a signature to the base (sorry if I've shown this up-side-down). There is a small discreet foot chip which is mainly on the underneath. Where the base colour is visible, the edges of the shoulders, the base and the rim, there is a lot of glaze crazing as in all Satsuma ware but this isn't evident on the blue body which has more of a matt finish. Approx 18 1/2" (47cm) x 6" diam across the shoulders. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian/Oriental Antiques\Japanese\Vases". The seller is "385gill" and is located in this country: GB.
