Antique Japanese Hexagonal Urn (7386)
Stunning hand painted two handled Japanese Urn.
Made in Japan is stamped in green on its base.
The shape is most unusual wherein it is curved (being top-heavy compared to its base) and also has six sides/panels.
Much of the gilt has worn off its handles - which appears to be from use. It has one chip in the glaze at the base -but the colour runs through it which seems unusual. There are lots of little chips on the black, flowered strips. It tings when tapped so no sign of any cracks.
It is a stunning piece.
Measures 100mm wide x 100mm deep x 315mm tall.
