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!

Stuff You Should Read About How We Do Business:

~We are always happy to combine orders for shipping if we can. Even when we must ship items in separate boxes for safety, we waive our $2 handling fee on the second and subsequent boxes. ~We do not use Buy-It-Now on our auctions and don't end auctions early for offers. It's not fair to those who are watching and expecting to bid at the end (a risky business, but many chance it nonetheless.) ~All our auctions are no-reserve. ~We guarantee your satisfaction on all items we sell. If we have missed something, which does happen from time to time with the antique and vintage items we handle, we will always make it right. ~We hate leaving negative feedback and only do when items are unpaid and the eBay unpaid item process fails. Don't make us do this! ~We will not misrepresent values (lie) on customs forms. We love our international shoppers and value them highly, but please don't embarrass us and yourselves by asking us to lie and then sign our name to the lie. It's not going to happen, so if you need that type of "assistance," it's a good thing not to bid
