I’m glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal.
Considering the photos, this item is:
An early 20th century satsuma-style bottle vase, presumably from Kobe region. It is extensively decorated with hand-painted details of a landscape. The top lip with gold-plated geometric figures and the body with a scene.
These Japanese ceramic vases became popular from 1900s having them produced massively for western markets and collectors. This artwork perfectly reflects the universe and the imagination that underlie Japanese representation, iconography and style.
Good condition, signed on the bottom.
$ 200 - 250
