This is a early Nippon collectors dream, beautiful and profusely decorated with a background of rolling mountains and trees, displaying an early morning sunrise. Enlarged birds and lakeside bulrushes are elegantly sculpted in high relief detail, the handles and mouth rim as well as the bulrushes are dotted with jewel-like turquoise beads, colors of chocolate, salmon pink, orange, and yellow dazzle the eyes. This is a very old and unmarked Nippon ware, as every collector knows that all such specimens were unmarked. Free of any damage, it measures 12 inches high. More images showing the base bottom and inside neck are available upon request.
