Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This pot is in good vintage condition, with a few flaws. There is a large chip on the inside of one foot (clearly shown in the third photo). I've applied pressure to this foot, though, and it is still solid all the way through.
There are some areas of paint wear and fading throughout the piece, as well as a few small spots of flaking.
This pot does not include a lid.
The interior is clean, but shows heavy crazing.
The flaws of this piece show great character of age, and do not necessarily detract from its overall beauty. It is still a marvelous, historic piece, likely circa late 1920's based on very similar pieces found.
Pot is marked on the bottom with "Hand Painted, Made in Japan" surrounding Japanese characters in a circle, in red ink.
This pot measures 6.5" in total height. Including the foo dog handles, it measures approx. 8.5" wide. The diameter of the pot's opening is 3" across.
