This is a handpainted Royal Satsuma vase, stands 24 inches high. I am running this for a friend, so I will do my best to describe this vase. I hope the pictures will help in the describtion. A beautiful vase with painted shining raised gold beads, geisha girls and Japanese men on front and back. The numbers 441573-6 in red on bottom, must be under the glaze, and reads, Handpainted, Royal Satauma, with some Japanese writing. T is also a symbol that is raised in the pottery, two diamond shapes together. T are no cracks or chips in the vase, excellant condition. This is a heavy vase, weighs almost 10 pounds. Please email if you have any questions, thank you.
