Hi all, I would like to have an opinion on this vase.
Originally, it has a paper sticker saying: made in the People Republic of China.
If we trust the sticker, it should be second half of 20th century.
I wonder if it could be a bit older, let say late Republic.
Thank you.


This looks like it was printed and then gone over with a brush in some areas to give the appearance of hand drawn, my guess is late 20th century.



To me this looks Japanese, whatever label there may have been on it. Even the mark seems to be Japanese (???? - Nagafuji-do made). The blossoms look more like cherries than plums to me, the way they are painted. The censer gives also a non-Chinese impression, especially the chrysanthemum on it. The blue color itself and the way it is applied looks odd, not typically Chinese.
The only other thing I could think of would be that it was made to order for Japan. But not first half of the 20th century, perhaps.


Thank you Peter, I appreciate your comment very much.
