Description

An antique tokanabe ware vase. A beautiful early 1900s vase. This vase was made in Japan in 1921 great leathery texture with an awesome crest that looks to be tribal featured. Black goes with everything!

Tokanabe was mold-pressed pottery, made in Japan for the US market in the 1920's and 30's. Tokanabe is typically black with a stippled texture and hand-painted raised relief designs. It was distributed through "Five and Dime" Stores like Woolworth's and through the Sears Company catalog between 1929 and 1930. Many an American bride received a piece or two of Tokanabe as a wedding gift during this period! Information on specific potters, painters, or manufacturers is unfortunately no longer available. Most pieces were unmarked except for the "Made in Japan" mark. It was stamped Nippon until 1921, when the US Congress passed legislation requiring all products manufactured in Japan for export to the United States to be marked Made in Japan.


For it's age this vase is in phenomenal condition.

It measures 5 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
