Antique Japanese Satsuma 1000 Faces Dragon Vase With Mark Possibly Meiji:
Up for consideration is an Incredible Antique, Japanese Six-Sided 1000 Faces Satsuma Vase. It stands approximately 9 1/2" tall, has a top diameter of approximately 4 1/4", and each of it's six sides is approximately 4 1/8" across at widest point. There is a maker mark underneath which includes an unusually large number of symbols or characters. There are some very small, short and fine hairlines on the very bottom base that run into the inside of the footing area. You can barely feel them with your fingernail. (see photos).
There is a white and brownish dragon surrounded by a blueish background with white dots encircling the top of the vase and another similar dragon encircling the mid-section. Parts of the dragon and some other areas of the vase are relief (they protrude up from the smooth area of the vase) and can be felt with the fingers.
This is an old vase and there could be some small imperfections I cannot see. If so, they will be small. Overall, this is an exceptional looking vase that is highly detailed with a mark that is outstanding. Beautiful Piece!
