This late 17th century (circa 1680-1700) Japanese Imari lidded vase features fluted sides and a domed cover with spreading rim and pointed knob. Painted round the sides are chrysanthemums, prunus and peony flowers growing by rocks, and round the shoulder, a band of radial panels with peonies and chrysanthemums.

The body of the vase lacks of its green glaze which probably turned brown due to a higher than usual kiln temperature when fired. This does not detract from the beauty of the vase and it is mentioned for the sake of accuracy.

Size: Height 52 cm, diameter 32 cm

Condition: the cover is perfect, the body has a hairline crack at the neck of about 7 cm
