I believe the jardinere is Kutani but it could be Satsuma. The jard is in excellent antique condition with expected wear. There are no cracks, chips, damage or repairs. There could be a few natural characteristics of old porcelain and surface scratches.
There is a lot of gilt or gold on the jard and it is in excellent condition. The bottom is unfinished and has dark areas. The inside of the pot has white porcelain finished at the top. Farther down, the inside is unfinished and has some old stains.I believe this area could be cleaned to whiten it up a little. There is some darkening around the bottom of the jard and under the rim. I have not tried to remove this. Weight: 6 pounds 10 ounces.
Diameter at top: 8 7/8. This beautiful antique Japanese Kutani porcelain jardiniere is a rare find. It would be a great addition to your collection of Asian art & antiques!
