Large Kutani Bowl
Click on image above for more views

.

This is a very large Japanese Kutani Porcelain bowl or basin that dates to the late 1800's. The overall pattern is that of flowers and birds in the traditional Kutani colors and highlighted with gilt. The exterior of the bowl is decorated with birds, flowers, grasses and tree limbs on the upper half and a very good diaper highlighted with gilt on the lower half. The bowl measures 13 1/2" in diameter at the rim and 4 9/16" high. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are a couple of glaze misses and, of course, wear to the gilt but the Kutani colors are quite vibrant ...... $375.00
