Description: Waiting for your purchase is this striking vintage vase, shaped like the head of a man with a fu man chu moustache. The face exhibits a fierce quality. Both eyes and eyebrows point sharply upward as if this fellow means business! His nose is prominent, slightly bulbous. The lips are painted on in dark brown, but are tightly pursed. A very unique vase for an Asian decor! The vase itself is a creamy beige color and the features are painted dark brown under the glaze. The "head" sits on a two ring pedestal base. On the very bottom of the vase is the incised mark. It is heavily glazed, so the mark is very hard to read. There are some numbers, but the word "JAPAN" is easily read. See my photo, perhaps you can better see the mark. This is an unusual old vase that will fit right in with today's decor. Let this warrior guard your home! He dates to the 1950's.

Measurement: Vase stands 7 1/4 inches tall. It measures almost 3 inches across the opening at the top.
Condition: EXCELLENT---no chips--has very minor crazing (crackling of glaze) on the very bottom--a quarter inch very old crack line is just inside the rim on one side--not very noticeable and seems to be an old manufacturing flaw but just wanted to mention it ........great vintage condition
