Rather unusual 19th century Kutani Japanese porcelain vase of modified meiping shape with enamel decoration of a long-tailed bird on a branch of a peach tree. Characteristic Kutani colors - see the ochre of the bird and green of the leaves - and extremely unusual background of very deep blue (looks almost black) enamel. Thickly potted, body feels closer to soft paste porcelain. Superb quality painting, very strong design, beautiful finely crackled glaze. Very pleasant patina, some scratches to the surface as to be expected. Height 6 7/8 inches.
