This pretty vase has raised white Moriage style decorating that forms the petals of the pale pink and lavender peonies and continues down the stem. This type of decorating was done with slip (liquid clay) squeezed out like cake frosting (not as easy as it sounds).
All of the decorations are very nicely hand painted; they cover the front only, as the back of the vase is undecorated. The mark on the bottom is printed in dark blue and reads "Made in Japan." There are no other marks.

The vase stands 10 inches tall and is about 9 inches across the shoulder. The diameter of the mouth is about 4 inches and the base is 5 3/4 inches across. It weighs 4 pounds so it's very stable and sturdy. Its condition is excellent, with no cracks, chips or crazing. It can hold many long-stemmed flowers and also make a lovely decorative statement on its own.
