ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR LARGE NIPPON HANDLED URN

OLD CHERRY BLOSSOM MARK, DATING TO 1924 FROM TOKI KASHA FACTORY JAPAN

Oh my gosh, this is an amazing large urn produced in Japan, probably in 1924 by the Toki Kasha factory in Japan. What a spectacular example of fine Japanese porcelain it is! This urn is quite large, standing 11" tall and about 6-1/2" in diameter at the base. The rim is about 4-1/2" in diameter. The piece is handpainted with spectacular roses with raised detailing throughout. The back side has another yellow rose painting, but is smaller and the borders do not have the pink florals on the back side. This piece is heavy and very substantial. T is marked gold trim loss at the rim and also on the handles, as you would expect from such an old piece.

T is a hairline crack in the bottom, on the underside of the urn. This crack appears old and is discolored,but it does not go through to the inside and t is no compromise to the urn because of it. It does not extend beyond the bottom of the urn. Other than that, t are no chips, no other cracks and no damage beyond normal wear and tear. It's a truly unusual and important piece for your collection. I'm including lots of photos for you. The urn weighs 3-1/2 pounds before packaging and will take special packaging for safe shipping. No reserve!
