Ceramic vase that is about 20 inches in length and about 7 inches in diameter. It is a vase with a Japanese warrior that is outlined with beautiful beads. The vase is also pained with gold leafing and has exquisite detail. The bottom of the base has a number 5 painted on the bottom and with four backwards three's around the outer edge of the bottom.
I found it at a yard sale and knew it was worth something. I do know that before 1891, items imported into the U.S. were not required to be marked with their country of origin. Effective March 1, 1891, the McKinley Tariff Act mandated that all goods have to be stamped with country of origin. So this vase may be from before 1891.
Your vase is Japanese Satsuma but yours is in typical export quality made around 1920 and brought home maybe an american G.I. after WW2.
