Beautiful Kutani porcelain jar of cylindrical shape resting on three karako feet, the lid surmounted by a finial representing probably a shinto god. The jar is painted with a continuous landscape of figures, pavilions and temples, between two decorative borders. The marks on the bottom and on the interior of the lid read: ”Kaga no Kuni Kutani (Sei) Murakami Ga”.
We date the jar from the second half of the XIXth century.
There are a few kiln faults, some soiling and wear to enamels, but the condition is good for the age. Please, refer to the pictures.
Dimensions: height (with lid): about 23 cm; diameter: 12 cm
