This is truly a exquisite mid century piece!

This 1940's vintage cream pitcher was made in occupied Japan. It is made with a special glaze that gives it a fabulous luster, this glaze making it called Lustreware.

The lustreware work on this particular piece is extraordinary, for, while the bottom is what is called a "peach" lustreware (almost golden), the top half of the creamer is OPALESCENT - a virtual soft and dreamy rainbow of colors emanating from the lustreware "white" portion - it is fantastic!

Hand painted with gold paint which is in RELIEF (you can feel the pattern with your fingers), this phenom of a creamer has gold flowers and leaves all over the front (see photos 1 and 2), and gold edging to the rim. The flowers are GORGEOUS!

Standing 3 3/4" high (to the spout) and measuring 5 1/2" wide from spout to handle, this piece is signed on the bottom (see photo 3) "Hand Painted, Made in Japan," and is in wonderful vintage condition. The paint has no chips or cracks. There is no crazing. Any "mar" is original to the piece, in the form of a bubble in the original ceramic or a kiln mark. The handle is in perfect working condition, and the inside is ALSO treated with a lustre glaze, so it, too, shimmers!

I LOVE this piece!

WITH APOLOGIES TO ALL MY INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: THE COST OF SHIPPING OUT OF THE U.S. HAS DOUBLED THIS YEAR. I AM TERRIBLY SORRY IT COSTS THIS MUCH TO SHIP, HOWEVER, IF IT COSTS ANY LESS WHEN I POST IT, I WILL IMMEDIATELY REFUND THE OVERAGE. IF IT COSTS MORE, I WILL ABSORB THE DIFFERENCE.
