Description

A very fine Japanese porcelain umbrella/stick stand. It includes Imari colors of blue and umber, and it measures 23 1/2" high, 9" in diameter, and there are no marks. It is decorated with blue and white wide bands at the top and bottom, while the sides are fashioned with four standing cranes, a favorite Japanese subject. (Cranes are symbols peace, longevity, and fortune and are often seen in Japanese art.) Additionally, there are two large flowering trees. Both the cranes and the flowering trees are rendered in high relief, which is unusual and not a common feature of their porcelain stands. The background painting includes bamboo trees, flying songbirds, foliage, and flowers. The colors are several shades of blue, umber, white, brown, green, orange, and black, with lots of gold highlighting. It is ca 1890, and it could be a one-of-a-kind example. It is from the Arita area of Japan, and it is in very good condition, with no damage or repairs. It is perfect for displaying fine pieces. Estimate: $1500-$2500.
