Stately and subtle, this tall vase exemplifies the virtues that have made Oribe stoneware favored by Japanese tea ceremonial connoisseurs and others for centuries.

Mint condition...

Now retired from painting, Micheline Rodolphe Rousseau, was the nom- de-brosse of a witty and charming Frenchwoman who delighted us for years with her scenes of France of the Belle Epoch. It is almost as if she said, "Reality, don't enter here!"
